Duke Ellington recorded The Nutcracker Suite for the Columbia label in 1960, featuring jazz interpretations of well-known melodies by Tchaikovsky. As a special Christmas treat, the Musical Theatre dancers join CCM Jazz to transform the Nutcracker Suite’s romantic orchestrations into jumpin’ jazz melodies.
