Derryl Yeager from Odyssey Dance Theater joined us this morning to talk about their 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 fifth 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.
It is as only Odyssey Dance Theatre can create – The ReduxNut-Cracker!
