The ReduxNut-Cracker

December 17-23, 2014

Odyssey Dance Theatre is proud to present the return of ReduxNut-Cracker! As they have successfully done to other great classics such as Giselle and Romeo and Juliet, to rave reviews from across the globe, ODT will bring The Nutcracker to life in the present day, with the original Tchaikovsky score reimagined and arranged in a pop/hip-hop style!

Imagine Clara, as the young lady whose imagination is inspired by the technological advances of today, is drawn into her smartphone to a magical world where Drosselmeyer drives a DeLorean, the soldiers are actually robots, and the gangsta mice have a hip-hop swagga.

If you’ve been to one too many Nutcrackers, then this is the one you will want to see—a reimagined, updated, visual feast full of surprises.

Carmen

March 5-7, 2015

An ancient story – a modern twist! Carmen, as you’ve never experienced it before, set in the world of the reality TV dance competition, with an amazing mix of music, utilizing the best of Bizet and Contemporary Pop classics. Yes, this story of Love, Passion, Betrayal, Obsession and Revenge is an old one, but mirrored in today’s headlines. Odyssey Dance Theatre’s brand new version of Carmen will be a contemporary choreographic masterpiece!
