Odyssey Dance Theatre is bringing its unique version of a holiday classic to Ogden and the Standard-Examiner is offering a special chance to win free tickets.
As they have successfully done to other great classics such as “Giselle” and “Romeo and Juliet,” Odyssey Dance Theatre will bring “The Nutcracker” to life in the present day in “ReduxNut-Cracker,” complete with the original Tchaikovsky score reimagined and arranged in a pop/hip-hop style.
Imagine Clara as a young lady whose imagination is inspired by the technological advances of today and is drawn into her smartphone to a magical world where Drosselmeyer drives a DeLorean, the soldiers are actually robots, and the mice have a hip-hop swagger.
If you’ve been to one too many “Nutcrackers,” you’ll still want to see this re-imagined and updated production; it’s a visual feast full of surprises.
Performances are at 7:30 p.m. on Dec. 1 and 2 at Weber State University’s Val Browning Center for the Arts. Tickets for those who don’t win are available online.
The Standard-Examiner is giving away four four-packs of tickets for each night, courtesy of Odyssey Dance Theatre. Enter to win below.
