Hard Nut photo

What holiday season would be complete without go-go boots, dancing G.I. Joes, gender-bending snowflakes, and a spirited, slightly out-of-control family Christmas party? Mark Morris’ The Hard Nut, “as gleefully irreverent as it is visually poetic and musically sensitive” (Dance Magazine), returns to Zellerbach Hall for the first time in five years with all that and more. Set to Tchaikovsky’s iconic Nutcracker score, this lavish production has been charming audiences for over 25 years, delivering a pitch-perfect dose of both naughty and nice!
