The Brooklyn Nutcracker 2017 | Irondale Ensemble Project | Thursday, 07. December 2017

We are thrilled to present the return of The Brooklyn Nutcracker, December 7-16, at the Irondale Center in downtown Brooklyn. Following a sold-out premiere season in 2016, The Brooklyn Nutcracker fuses ballet, hip-hop and an array of world dance genres to create a new tradition for today’s audience. A re-imagined holiday classic, this critically acclaimed work transforms familiar Nutcracker characters and scenes to represent the diverse traditions and vibrant multicultural history of Brooklyn.

Our unique collaboration with tech-based artists and designers provide audiences with a multi-sensory experience, exploring ground-breaking technology of light and motion-responsive costumes. Within moments, the digital set and backdrop transports the plot from historical old Dutch Brooklyn to the iconic Flatbush Avenue—in an homage to the county of Kings.
