|Featuring Savion Glover, Keith David, Lizz Wright and
This special holiday presentation, produced by the Apollo Theater Foundation, featuresSavion Glover (pictured) – Newark’s own tap master – in a spirited celebration of the music of Duke Ellington. For a jazzy twist on a seasonal classic, nothing beats a live performance of the Ellington/Strayhorn Nutcracker Suite, a jumpin’ interpretation of Tchaikovsky’s score featuring the 16-piece David Berger Jazz Orchestra and students of Dance Theatre of Harlem. Also on the program is Ellington’s rarely performed, reverent and hip Sacred Music, narrated by actor Keith David and accompanied by orchestra, choir, the soaring voices of Lizz Wright and Priscilla Baskerville and Glover himself.
