Enter to win tickets to New Ballet's Nut Remix at The Cannon Center from Nov 15-17!

New Ballet’s 17th annual Nut Remix kicks off the holiday season at the Cannon Center November 15-17, presented by Nike! Every holiday season Nut Remix delights Memphis’ audiences with a modern reinvention of Tchaikovsky’s classic Nutcracker, set on Beale Street. Classical Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Hip-Hop, Flamenco, Memphis Jookin, West African dance, and more create a magical world of movement and music that you’ll never forget!

The Memphis Symphony Orchestra and Big Band play live along with Flamenco musicians and African drummers. Unless you’ve seen Nut Remix, you’ve never seen a show like this! Nut Remix tells a new story of conflict resolution, embraces a global perspective, and celebrates authentic cultural legacies from around the world. This performance is the uniquely Memphis celebration of a holiday classic! The New York Times named Nut Remix one of the three most innovative “Nutcrackers” in America! 

This year, Marquez ‘Spider’ Alexander will be starring as the Angel of Memphis, a role previously performed by New Ballet Alum Charles ‘Lil Buck’ Riley. Spider has mastered a rich collection of dance styles, such as Memphis Jookin’, Ballet, Crumpin’, Salsa, Poppin’, Acrobatics, and more! Spider also recently completed a 3-year reign as the King of Memphis Jookin’, and has been performing in shows and competitions worldwide! He will be performing in Nut Remix alongside 200+ cast members, 90% of whom are students artists!
