NBE’s creative reinvention of ballet classic The Nutcracker is a holiday tradition for thousands of Mid-Southerners who love the wide world of dance and music in the show – from classical ballet to hip-hop, flamenco to traditional African dance, and more. The 15th annual production returns to the beautiful Cannon Center with the Memphis Symphony Orchestra playing selections from Tchaikovsky’s original score plus orchestrations written for this production, and the Memphis Symphony Big Band swings arrangements from Duke Ellington’s jazz version of the Nutcracker. There’s live flamenco, African drumming, even some Booker T & The MG’s inspiring more than 150 dancers onstage!

The New York Times said of Nut ReMix, “These people just love all kinds of dance.” Join us in November and you will too!
