On Wednesday, Dec. 9, Odyssey Dance Theatre will present its own version of the holiday dance classic “The Nutcracker” at the Cox Performing Arts Center in St. George. As they have successfully done to other great classics such as “Giselle” and “Romeo and Juliet” to rave reviews from across the globe, Odyssey Dance Theatre brings this production to life in the present day for the third year with the original Tchaikovsky score re-imagined and arranged in a hip-hop style.
Imagine Clara as a 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 swagger.
If you’ve been to one-too-many performances of the same old Nutcracker, this is the one you will want to see: re-imagined, updated, and a visual feast full of surprises.
Tickets range in price from $15 to $30. Click here to purchase.
