The Invincible Czars bring a cavalcade of music and merriment to stages across Texas every year. Their show centers around a whimsical rock interpretation of Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite but has expanded in recent years to include the band’s unique interpretations of other seasonal favorites – or what they call “ruining” Christmas songs.
The band premiered their arrangements of the Nutcracker Suite in Austin at the Church of the Friendly Ghost in December 2004. What was intended to be a one-time novelty performance expanded over the years to include dancers, lighting, video and collaborations with civic and arts organizations such as the Downtown Austin Alliance, Boys & Girls Clubs of Austin, KUT, Austin Children’s Museum / The Thinkery, Ballet Austin, Houston Ballet, Houston Public Radio and more.
Perfect holiday fare for private parties, family-friendly events, company parties, holiday festivals, tree lightings, ice skating rinks and ballet & arts organization events.
