EXO Nutcracker Dance Party
DiMenna Center for Classical Music
450 W 37th St
EXO will be performing Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker with our outrageously brilliant orchestra, but instead of sitting hundreds of feet away, watching professional dancers perform on a stage, you are invited to dance to this exquisite music yourself, or, if you prefer, to sit in and among the players of the orchestra.
for adults are $40 for dancing or standing room, and $75 for a
seat inside the orchestra; a special $100 VIP ticket with champagne
reception is also available.
All tickets will be at will call by last name. Coat check available.
Champagne reception will be held at 7:15pm. Doors and bar at 7.
Experiential Orchestra was founded by conductor James Blachly as a way
to invite audiences more deeply into the sound and powerful experience
of the symphony orchestra.
EXO's signature event is their singular Rite of Spring Dance Party, which invites the audience to dance to Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring, and which has been called "the future of classical music."
James Blachly says "my sense is that in this age of technology and
speed, we crave full-body experiences that sweep us up and where we are
invited to hold nothing back. There is no bigger experience in sound
than a live symphony orchestra, and I want to open up that experience
for new audiences and have them fall in love with the music on their own
terms and through their own joy and wonder and awe."
orchestra is drawn from top-level New York freelancers, with members of
Decoda, Musicians from Marlboro, Canadian Brass and other elite
ensembles in principal positions.
