“The Hard Nut,” grooves into the BAM Howard Gilman Opera House from Dec. 14 to 23.

BAM and Mark Morris Dance Group once again present the holiday classic — a cheeky yet reverent homage to “The Nutcracker.” For this updated classic fairytale, Morris sets the action in the groovy ’70s, complete with go-go boots, G.I. Joe soldiers, a dancing Barbie doll, and inspired gender-bending casting.

“The Hard Nut” takes its title from the story-within-a-story from Hoffman’s “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King,” wherein an evil Rat Queen promises to restore the Princess Pirlipat’s beauty if a young man can crack the “hard nut” with his teeth.

“The Hard Nut,” Dec 14 and 15, 20–22 at 7:30 pm; Dec 15 and 22 at 2 pm; and Dec 16 and 23 at 3 pm. Tickets start at $25. Suitable for ages 4 and up.

BAM Howard Gilman Opera House (30 Lafayette Ave. between Ashland Place and St. Felix Street in Fort Greene, www.bam.org).
