The 16th annual Nut ReMix is back at the Cannon Center, in December this year to start your Christmas season with its unique groove, featuring New Ballet grad and international dance star Charles "Lil Buck" Riley and 150 performers, plus the Memphis Symphony Orchestra and Big Band in the pit! 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 traditional 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, African drummers, even some Booker T & The MG’s!

Unless you’ve seen Nut ReMix before, you’ve never seen a show like this!
