“The Hip Hop Nutcracker” returns to Portland and for a better than ever show.

The contemporary dance spectacle set to Tchaikovsky’s timeless music is performed by a cast of a dozen all-star dancers, a DJ, a violinist, and MC Kurtis Blow, one of hip hop’s founding fathers, who opens the show with a short set.

The dynamic show takes you on a journey that celebrates love, community and the magic of the holiday season through the modern, self-expressive gaze of hip hop culture.

Two performances will take place at Keller Auditorium, downtown, Tuesday, Nov. 12 and Wednesday, Nov. 13. Tickets are on sale now at portland5.com, the Portland’5 Centers for the Arts box office at 1111 S.W. Broadway, and by phone: 800-273-1530.
