About this event

Equal Rights Night - Nutcracker with a Twist

Silver Spring, Md. – A bold remastering of Nutcracker is on tap this holiday season in a production that puts a distinctly feminist spin on the classic ballet by bringing to life a diverse mix of trailblazing and history-making women. Billed as “Equal-Rights Night – Nutcracker with a Twist,” an original work staged by the prestigious Akhmedova Ballet Academy (ABA), the adaptation turns the standard Nutcracker and perennial Christmas favorite squarely on its head, swapping out demure maidens and a handsome prince for a group of some of the world’s most influential and courageous women, such as American abolitionist and political activist Harriet Tubman and feminist icon U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the first Jewish woman on the High Court and a tireless advocate for gender-equity.
