Tomorrow night at the Abrons Arts Center, it's the return of the Nutcracker, reimagined for the Lower East Side. In its ninth year, the Urban Ballet Theater's take on Tchaikovsky's classic ballet incorporates flamenco, hip-hop, African, and Asian dance styles. As Abrons says on its web site, "the
representation of such diversity not only innovates the storytelling
for both children and adults, but it also serves as a natural
expression of the multi-layered community of artists in the Lower East
Side." Tomorrow at 3pm and 7:30pm; Sunday at 3pm. Tickets are $20 – discounts for groups of 4 or more. For more information, see the Abrons Arts Center's web site.
