Come experience Cutno Dance Center’s rendition of the classic ballet “The Nutcracker”. Creative Director Ferneasa Cutno has put together a lively contemporary version titled “Nutcracker in the South” using the classic score by Tchaikovsky and the score by Duke Ellington. Duke Ellington was an American Pianist, composer, and band leader. He recorded “The Nutcracker Suite”, after meeting Tchaikovsky in Las Vegas, for the Columbia Label in 1960. This album features jazz interpretations of “The Nutcracker” by Tchaikovsy.
This lively contemporary version has re-imagined scenes using everything from urban hip hop to classic ballet. This child friendly ballet takes place during a young Girl’s dream sequence. Clara (the main character) falls asleep under the Christmas tree and dreams that her Nutcracker has come alive and taken her on a journey to a beautiful land filled with sweets.
