Meyerhoff Symphony Hall (1212 Cathedral St., Baltimore, MD 21201)

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 Step Afrika! Join the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra for this very special world premiere.

Registration includes a ticket to the performance, a reception that offers a complimentary mimosa, non-alcoholic beverages and hors d'oeuvres. During intermission, dessert and coffee/ tea will be served.
