A Hip Hop Nutcracker coming to London

It is finally the time of year when everyone begins to settle into the holiday spirit. Now that winter weather has arrived everyone is checking the calendar to count down the days until Christmas.

One holiday event that people around the world know symbolizes this time of year is a performance of “The Nutcracker” but this year in London, the performance will have quite a twist.

A Hip Hop Nutcracker” is coming to London on December 3rd for a new take on the classic holiday show. The performance takes place at Budweiser Gardens at 7:30 PM.

The show includes the classic Tchaikovsky score from the original “Nutcracker” but provides a new, exciting take on the classic story with hip-hop dance moves and a live-DJ.

The main star of the show is Kurtis Blow, known for being the King of Rap from Harlem. You would probably recognize his hit songs like “The Breaks” or “Christmas Rappin’.”

Blow, one of the first commercially successful rappers and the first to sign with a major record label, is accompanied by a troupe of 12 all-star dancers and an eclectic violinist. You’ll witness the Christmas classic like you’ve never seen it.

The best part of the show is that it’s kid friendly! The younger generation will love this rare chance to see world class hip hop in London.

CBS News says ““The Hip Hop Nutcracker turns Tchaikovsky on his head, in the coolest possible way.”

The New York Times says that this show brings “a generous dose of contemporary spirit sure to heat up even the most restless and wintry of souls.

The Dec. 3rd performance at Budweiser Gardens is the only Canadian stop during the tour.
