!“Morris reveals what pure choreography can do that narrative dance-theatre can’t: make music visible, show what happiness looks like.” —The Guardian, London
Mark Morris’ hip and heartwarming “re-take” on the Nutcracker tale returns to its favorite holiday home following its sensational London debut last December. Revealing the depth of Morris’ unsurpassed talents in a seemingly endless display of creativity and masterful dancing, The Hard Nut will leave you laughing breathlessly one moment (with dancing Barbie Dolls, G.I. Joes, hilarious snowflakes, and waltzing flowers) and with a lump in your throat the next (a deeply moving pas de deux). “Morris reveals what pure choreography can do that narrative dance-theatre can’t: make music visible, show what happiness looks like,” said The Guardian (London) of this new holiday classic, set to Tchaikovsky’s timeless score.
