Odyssey Dance Theatre does it again and will present its own version of the Holiday Dance Classic – The Nutcracker! As they have successfully done, to other great classics such as Giselle and Romeo and Juliet, to rave reviews from across the globe, ODT will bring this production to life in the present day, with the original Tchaikovsky score re-imagined and arranged in a pop/hip-hop style!
Imagine Clara as the young lady whose imagination is inspired by the technological advances of today and is drawn into her smartphone to a magical world where Drosselmeyer drives a DeLorean, the soldiers are actually robots, and the gangsta mice have a hip-hop swagga.
If you’ve been to one too many Nutcrackers, then this is the one you will want to see--re-imagined, updated, and a visual feast full of surprises.
It is as only Odyssey Dance Theatre can create – The ReduxNut-Cracker!
