Retro-Modern Nutcracker

By Alexandra Glorioso

Through Dec. 19: To celebrate its 30th anniversary, Mark Morris Dance Group reprises its irreverent and much-loved The Hard Nut, a retro-modern take on the holiday favorite The Nutcracker. Morris’ rendition—which has won Ovation TV’s Battle of the Nutcrackers contest for three years running—transplants the story from the decorous 1890s to the swinging 1970s. Inspired by the E.T.A. Hoffmann story, Tchaikovsky’s gorgeous score, and the comic book art of Charles Burns, Morris captures the beauty and tenderness of this classic while infusing it with supreme musicality and raucous humor. Appropriate for ages 4 & up.
