Ballethnic Dance Company's imaginative adaptation of Tchaikovsky's holiday classic gives it a soulful, urban vibe. "Urban Nutcracker Act II - Wonderland" takes place in The Land of Sweets, where a young girl dreams about taking a journey to the "land of Sweet Auburn Avenue." Sarah and her brother Leroy are greeted with delightful gifts and entertained by a bubbly Coca-Cola Pas de Six, leaping Black Russians, and Spice Drop Tumblers. The queen of Auburn Avenue, Brown Sugar, and the Chocolatier present Sarah and Leroy with an enchanting grand Pas de Deux followed by a colorful finale featuring all the dancers. The production is set to the traditional Tchaikovsky score along with adapted music by L. Gerard Reid and is performed by a multicultural cast of youth and professional artists.
