Nut Remix 2018
Dec. 14 - 7:00 pm; Dec. 15 - 5:30 pm, Dec. 16 - 2:30 pm
The 16th annual Nut ReMix is back at the Cannon Center, on a new weekend, December 14-16, to start your Christmas season with its unique groove! New Ballet grad and global dance star Charles "Lil Buck" Riley is only one of the internationally renowned guest artists featured!
Nut Remix is a modern reimagining of Tchaikovsky’s classic Nutcracker, set on Memphis’s Beale Street, but there’s a wide world of dance and music in the show… from classical ballet to hip-hop, flamenco to Memphis Jookin to West African dance, and more. The New York Times said, “the spirit onstage is wonderful!”
The Memphis Symphony Orchestra plays selections from Tchaikovsky’s beloved score and special orchestrations written for Nut Remix. The Memphis Symphony Big Band contributes pieces from Duke Ellington’s jazz version of the Nutcracker. Plus live flamenco musicians, African drummers, even some Booker T & The MG’s!
If you haven't seen Nut Remix, you’ve never seen a show like this!
