It's time to imbue Christmas with a little bit more jazz, in the most exciting reimagining of the Nutcracker that you've ever seen. In 1960 two jazz musicians Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn collaborated on a new arrangement of Tchaikovsky's original score, and this collaboration created something so groundbreaking that it shook the world. Librettist Jessica Swan took inspiration from the duo's work to form Sugar Hill, the Ellington Strayhorn Nutcracker. Don't miss this thrilling new take on the renowned ballet!
