From BAM: “The Hard Nut”

From BAM-Brooklyn Academy of Music


Dec 14—23
Tickets start at $25

Mark Morris Dance Group breathes new life into The Nutcracker while playfully preserving the warm spirit of the original. Based on the comic book art of Charles Burns and featuring a live orchestral rendition of Tchaikovsky’s original score, The Hard Nut is a swinging 70s homage to all that’s wild and wonderful in E.T.A. Hoffmann’s holiday tale.

The Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) is a performing arts venue in Brooklyn, New York City, known as a center for progressive and avant garde performance. It presented its first performance in 1861 and began operations in its present location in 1908.

Today, BAM has a reputation as a leader in presenting “cutting edge” performance and has grown into an urban arts center which focuses on both international arts presentation and local community needs. Its purpose is to provide an environment in which its audiences – annually, more than 775,000 people – can experience a broad array of aesthetic and cultural programs. From 1999 to 2014, BAM was headed by Karen Brooks Hopkins, President, and Joseph V. Melillo, Executive Producer. Katy Clark is now president, succeeding Hopkins who retired in spring 2015.
