nutcracker on the rocks
Traditional meets contemporary for an exciting and magical holiday event. Opening with Tchaikovsky’s Overture and closing with his dramatic Pas de Deux, the classic tale is re-imagined with a production filled with rock and roll hits by the Velvet Underground, Aretha Franklin, The Rolling Stones, Janis Joplin and many more. Modern dance styles infused with Swing, Hip Hop, African dance propel the performers as they amp up the energy and excitement.
In 2016, Shira Greenberg’s Nutcracker on the Rocks marked its 20th Annual and final run of this iconic performance in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Nutcracker on the Rocks continues to be performed by Cohesion Dance Project in Helena, Montana. Cohesion Dance Project recently completed their 5th Annual Nutcracker on the Rocks season.
