Odyssey Dance Theatre Presents The ReduxNut-Cracker
- December 12 – 22, 2018
- Kingsbury Hall
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+Juliet to rave reviews from across the globe, for the sixth year, ODT brings 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.
