After 25 years, more than 500 performances and three different versions of the beloved holiday classic, Atlanta Ballet invites audiences to experience the magic of The Nutcracker at the Fox Theatre for its final run of performances at the historic venue from December 7-24, 2019. Starting in 2020, Atlanta Ballet will perform The Nutcracker at Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre.  

“While we are going to miss its twinkling marquee, iconic starry sky, elaborate Moorish décor and, of course, our dear friend ‘Mighty Mo,’ we are thrilled to introduce audiences to a brand-new, state-of-the-art Nutcracker experience at the incredible Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre,” Jacobus says. “We look forward to continuing to make memories with longtime Nutcracker-goers as well as establishing new traditions with the next generation of Nutcracker audiences at this world-class venue.”

In addition to offering audiences a spectacular theatre experience, Atlanta Ballet aims to extend the number of Nutcracker performances, giving local Atlantans and tourists alike more opportunities to escape from reality and enter the enchanting dream world that is The Nutcracker

“The Fox Theatre holds a special place in the hearts of so many families who have established a tradition in attending Atlanta Ballet’s production of The Nutcracker every holiday season, and we are excited to celebrate the legacy that is ‘The Nutcracker at the Fox’ at every performance throughout this final run,” says Nedvigin. “We are lucky to have the opportunity to present future productions of The Nutcracker at such a remarkable facility that is specifically designed for performing arts. Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre will serve as an ideal venue for audiences to experience this cutting-edge production in all its high-tech glory.”
