Klezmer Nutcracker, Washington, DC, Dec 21

Critically acclaimed Shirim Klezmer Orchestra will give two performances of The Klezmer Nutcracker in the Aaron & Cecile Goldman Theater at the District of Columbia Jewish Community Center on Sunday, December 21. The first performance will be a 45-minute acoustic kids' show at 12:00pm. The second performance will be a full-length show (approx. 90 minutes) at 3:00pm. Boston-based Shirim Klezmer Orchestra takes familiar musical material for a wild ride, playing melodies taken from Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker in the rollicking style of Klezmer music. Billboard Magazine called The Klezmer Nutcracker "…utterly natural and totally compelling. Shirim's genre-conception is a delight and its playing a joy." The Klezmer Nutcracker is a musical performance only. There is no dancing or dramatization of the original Nutcracker story. For tickets and parking information, call 202-777-3254 or email rachels@dcjcc.org. Tickets for the noon children’s show are $15 for adults and $12 for children. Tickets for the 3pm full-length show are $25 for DCJCC members and $30 for non-members.
