Get a First Look at our New Nutcracker!
On Monday, May 21, Atlanta Ballet hosted a media preview for the new, break-through production of The Nutcracker, which coincided with single tickets going on sale to the general public early that day. There was a palpable excitement in the air as Atlanta Ballet President & CEO Arturo Jacobus welcomed the crowd and introduced trustee Chris Carlos (whose family foundation in honor of his mother, Thalia N. Carlos, is a leading, platinum sponsor of the production) and trustee Linda Morris (representing PNC, the gold-level Nutcracker sponsor). Opening remarks were followed by a lively Q & A with Artistic Director Gennadi Nedvigin, choreographer Yuri Possokhov, and lighting designer David Finn. The main takeaway was that the new Nutcracker will stay true to the original E.T.A. Hoffman story but utilize the latest technologies and larger-than-life designs to make this a leading a production for the next generation!
