An exciting Funked out, Techno, Classical, Disco Journey of this well known ballet. Finally Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Ballet sounds fresh and hip again! It's strange and beautiful and you can dance to it, and I don't mean just the Ballet.
This work was orignially arranged in Santa Fe, New Mexico in for a dance choreographer for her Jazzed Up performance of The Nutcracker Ballet. The music was performed 'live' (in additon to the pre-recorded tracks) with the dance performance a la Cirque du Solei.
N2K-NUTCRAKCER 2000 was awarded a 'Special Award' by ASCAP 2 years in a row, 2001 and 2002.
This CD comes in a Fun Red Italian Mono Can with the Nutcaker looking like Bootsy Collins on the cover and it takes on a totally unique and wild approach to this well known ballet.
