A Tempo: Dallas Black Dance Theatre Brings Its Espresso Nutcracker Online

Amitava Sarkar

When Dallas Black Dance Theatre's Academy first created its Espresso Nutcracker in 2018, bringing together parts of the Tchaikovsky ballet with Duke Ellington's jazz-infused Nutcracker Suite, it quickly had to expand the production as venues sold out amid popular demand for tickets. This year it will continue its tradition with a virtual production, mixing video from past performances with newly recorded selections.
