I saw the nutcracker live performance at the Fox last night. Kiara Felder and her partners solo performance in the second half of the show was breath taking; I was moved to tears. She has a gift and you guys are very blessed to have her.The entire show from start to finish was amazing. I will be attending as many performances as possible in the near future. GREAT job! New fan of Atlanta Ballet.

The Fox is the most magnificent theater I have ever been in! I am still sharing photographs with friends and encouraging them to go when in Atlanta. The performance was exceptional and I recommend it as a Christmas "must see".

I took my 5 daughters for a fun Christmas outing. The changes to the second act were disappointing. Missed the emphasis on the Nutcracker and the Rat King, and the dream sequence. However, it was still a very good performance and we enjoyed it very much.

This was a really wonderful show. Will definitely be going back next year!
Heather Murphy, HLN's Weekend Express with Lynn Smith, 2015.12.21
For many people, seeing a performance of The Nutcracker is a holiday tradition, and none of us can escape the music once the Christmas season cranks up. The Atlanta Ballet invited Weekend Express behind the scenes of its production at the historic Fox Theater.
Kathleen Wessel, ArtsATL, 2015.12.16
In some cities The Nutcracker tastes like stale fruitcake: a necessary holiday staple endured for the sake of tradition. Thankfully, Atlanta can breathe a peppermint-scented sigh of relief. Atlanta Ballet’s Nutcracker, this time around, is as fresh as a just-cut spruce tree, as comforting and sweet as warm apple cider... It was the strongest Nutcracker I’ve seen in years. Joyously danced by Atlanta Ballet company members and students alike...
Michelle Khouri, Where Magazine, 2015.12.15
After 21 impressive years transforming the Atlanta Ballet into one of the world’s most celebrated dance companies, Artistic Director John McFall will drop the curtain on his tenure in June 2016. In this exclusive interview, the acclaimed dancer, choreographer and director walked down memory lane with Where and discussed why the arts should play more of a leading role in children’s educations. Catch McFall’s final "Nutcracker" through Dec. 27 at The Fox Theatre.
Tanya Mendoza, Fox 5 Atlanta, 2015.12.14
Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken stopped by the Fox Theatre to chat with Mr. McFall and look back on his long, storied history with "Atlanta Ballet's Nutcracker."
Charlie Marcus, WREK Atlanta Radio, 2015.12.13
Jackie Nash from the Atlanta Ballet came by the station to discuss her life as a dancer and The Nutcracker.
Brittany Hurst, Atlanta Real Estate Forum Radio Show, 2015.12.10
Todd Schnick and Bryan Nonni are joined on the Atlanta Real Estate Forum Radio show by Jonah Hooper, a company dancer with the Atlanta Ballet. The trio discusses the Atlanta Ballet, the upcoming opening night of The Nutcracker, intimate details about the production of The Nutcracker and upcoming events for the Atlanta Ballet in 2016.
Cynthia Bond Perry, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, 2015.11.25
It is fitting that the largest public celebration currently planned during McFall’s last season takes place around “The Nutcracker.” His first full-length ballet during his initial year as director, the production has provided essential thrust as the organization has reached new heights in revenues, infrastructure and artistic quality under his watch.
