  The Hip Hop Nutcracker at Paramount Theatre

The Hip Hop Nutcracker

Paramount Theatre
2025 Broadway Oakland

A holiday mash-up for the entire family, The Hip Hop Nutcracker is an internationally touring contemporary work set to Tchaikovsky's timeless music. The Hip Hop Nutcracker will feature MC Kurtis Blow, one of hip hop's founding fathers, opening the show with a short set before rapping the introduction. Directed and choreographed by Jennifer Weber, The Hip Hop Nutcracker is a full-length production performed by a supercharged cast of a dozen all-star dancers, DJ and an electric violinist. Through the spells cast by the mysterious Drosselmeyer, Maria-Clara and her prince, Myron, travel back in time to the moment when her parents first meet in a nightclub. Digital scenery transforms E.T.A. Hoffmann's story of a palace of sugarplums into a romance set in 1980s Brooklyn. The dance work celebrates love, community and the magic of New Year's Eve, and is coming to Oakland's Paramount Theatre.
