It’s Finally Here!

Nutcracker season has returned to the Fabulous Fox Theatre!  On opening night, Thursday, December 8, the theatre will be packed with ballet aficionados and Nutcracker newbies alike!  With our special guests from Belk, we hope you'll join us for one of Atlanta's most beloved holiday traditions! For over 52 years, Atlanta Ballet's Nutcracker has helped usher in that magical feeling of the holidays.  This year, can you spot some new additions to our production:

  • 250 students from the Atlanta Ballet Centre for Dance Education performing multiple roles as mice, party children, munchkin chefs, and even the baby lambs.
  • A new backdrop for scene two - painted by Kat Conley
  • New lighting designed by Robert Hand, Jr.
  • New costumes for shepherdess and the Arabian pas de deux

Don't miss out on the excitement of the season!
