DANCE | 'Hip-Hop Nutcracker' 

"The Nutcracker" is, of course, a holiday season staple — hell, December already brought the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra and Rochester City Ballet version, New York State Ballet's performance, and a traditional take with the "Great Russian Nutcracker." You wouldn't be blamed for being a little burnt out. But this final "Nutcracker" performance of the year is bringing some reinvigorating uniqueness. The touring "Hip-Hop Nutcracker" is just that: A completely reimagined "Nutcracker," updated to modern New York City, set to a hip-hop interpretation of Tchaikovsky's score, and performed by world class breakers. Directed and choreographed by Jennifer Weber, the artistic director of Decadancetheatre in Brooklyn, and featuring Ann-Sylvia Clark as Maria-Clara and Josue "Beast" Figueroa as The Nutcracker.

"Hip-Hop Nutcracker" will be on stage Wednesday, December 20, at the Auditorium Theatre, 885 East Main Street. 7:30 p.m. $30-$68. 222-5000; rbtl.org; hiphopnutcracker.com.
