Jersey City Nutcracker 7pm
Date: Friday, December 17, 2021
The highly acclaimed Nimbus Dance performs against a dazzling backdrop of full-scale sets and fantastical projections of illustrated scenes. Audiences are transported across the city – through parks, lively avenues, deserted alleyways, the sewers (for an epic battle scene!) and back to the City Hall, with surprises, cheer, and a message of hope and resilience along the way. This quirky and lovable adaptation of Tchaikovsky’s timeless classic, takes place in Jersey City and weaves together themes of magic, adventure, family, and friendship.
Choreographed by Samuel Pott, with animated scenic projections by Jersey City-based video artists, Laia Cabrera and Isabelle Duverger, and a delightful libretto co-written by Alysia Souder and Samuel Pott, Jersey City Nutcracker takes audiences on a magical shopping-cart-turned-sleigh-ride with twists and turns that your whole family will enjoy!
Jersey City Nutcracker is made possible through the lead sponsorship of Goldman Sachs.
