Company XIV brings back its modern riff on the classic holiday tale that's a hedonistic fusion of nightlife and theater. More…
This sexy reimagining of 'The Nutcracker' is infused with elements of opera, circus, vaudeville, and burlesque, and is told with erotic, sensual, and opulent flair. The wide-eyed heroine is now an adult named Marie Claire, and the world she discovers is a wintry realm of half-naked dancers and acrobats, gyrating and performing physical stunts that send her into a state of ecstasy.
