Overview

STEP into the holiday season with this fully realized jazz version of the timeless Nutcracker. Riffing off of Ellington’s dazzling reimagining of a portion of Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece, jazz composer Paul Murtha has created an entire “Swingin Nutcracker” with both an Act 1 and Act 2. This semi-staged production features the vibrant and percussive dancing of Washington based company, Step Afrika! Join the BSO for this very special world premiere.
