For the 2013 holiday season at the Apollo, Duke Ellington meets the holiday classic, The Nutcracker. Ellington and Billy Strayhorn added swinging brass, colorful solos and jazz melodies to Tchaikovsky's score. The program's second half highlights the rarely performed Sacred Music performed by a 16-piece orchestra, the Abyssinian Baptist Church Choir, and tap master Savion Glover.
