We are honored to introduce The Nutcracker, created by internationally acclaimed choreographer Yuri Possokhov for Atlanta Ballet, to a new generation. We hope this Nutcracker will continue to be a cherished holiday tradition for years to come.

The Thalia N. Carlos & Chris M. Carlos Foundation

“ We are proud to honor my mother’s passion for ballet and commitment to the arts by contributing to the creation of Atlanta Ballet’s new Nutcracker

The Nutcracker is one of our city’s most beloved holiday traditions, and we hope to see fellow Atlantans take on the challenge to support this magical new production.”

AtlantaBallet and The Nutcracker have been a part of my family for a very long time. Not only have my two daughters witnessed Atlanta Ballet’s Nutcracker many times from the audience, but they have also performed in the ballet through the Atlanta Ballet Centre for Dance Education (CDE).

They have spent many hours in rehearsals, and on stage in this magical production, which has become a tradition for our family. It has been so gratifying to watch my girls grow through their participation in this production.

I truly believe their poise and self-confidence have been positively impacted through their years of dance training. I also believe my family’s personal experience with the CDE translates to the positive influence dance has on young people, and the lasting impact it can have on these students’ future lives.

I have not always been an “arts guy,” but my mother Thalia was a passionate supporter of the arts, and she instilled her love for the arts in my girls and me. I understand how important and valuable the arts have been for my children and for the community. My family has been very blessed, and we have always strived to give back to our community by

donating to the arts and other causes we believe help make Atlanta the great city that it is today. I continue to work hard to carry on the family legacy, so I am able to give my own children and all of Atlanta’s children the gift of experiencing the arts and witnessing the beauty of dance.

I support the arts because it represents an expression of the joy of life, of living, and of happiness, all of which are essential for a fulfilled life.

When Atlanta Ballet presented the opportunity to support a brand-new Nutcracker, I jumped at the chance.

I knew Atlanta Ballet and the creative team assembled by Artistic Director Gennadi Nedvigin would create a spectacular production. I also wanted to honor my beloved mother and her dedication to enhancing and sustaining Atlanta Ballet as well as the arts in Atlanta with a lasting legacy.

I chose to make this gift as a challenge to the community to encourage others to support this production, too. Collectively our support will allow more than 1.2 million Atlantans to enjoy this incredible new version of The Nutcracker over the next 20 years.

The Story of The Nutcracker

Thisstaging of The Nutcracker ballet takes place in a charming German city on Christmas Eve and pulls in elements from E.T.A. Hoffmann’s 1816 story “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King,” set to the iconic Tchaikovsky score. This two-act ballet, a classic holiday story, uses elaborately crafted scenery combined with advanced techniques in lighting and video projection to enhance the story’s magic.

Act I

It is Christmas Eve, and family and friends gather for holiday festivities at the Stahlbaum house. Guests arrive by sleds and skis and frolic outside. Young Marie Stahlbaum, a shy bookworm, welcomes the arrival of the guests, including her mysterious godfather Drosselmeier, a clock worker who, with his magical abilities, makes Christmas presents for his nieces and nephews every year. This year, he brings a peculiar gift to Marie – a nutcracker doll.

It is nearly midnight, the party has ended, and the guests have said their goodbyes. Marie returns to the cabinet to check on her new Nutcracker doll and suddenly finds herself surrounded by a horde of menacing mice. Magically, her beloved Nutcracker jumps to the rescue as she watches her dolls come to life and everything around her grows in size.

After an exhausting, but yet unfinished battle, Drosselmeier reveals to Marie that the Nutcracker is a prince. Charmed with each other, they dance through a wonderland of snow before embarking on a magical journey.

Act 2

Drosselmeier enters in grand fashion and introduces a world of books, thousands flying in the air when he selects one particularly interesting book. It happens to be the very same book Marie used to fight off the mice and where the Mouse King hid after the battle. The Nutcracker Prince and Marie float back in together and dance among the flowers. Drosselmeier recalls the book, which has grown tremendously, and the Mouse King and his army appear. Drosselmeier arms the Nutcracker Prince for a battle, and the Nutcracker Prince defeats the Mouse King with his sword.

Drosselmeier invites Marie and the Nutcracker Prince back into his mysterious world, taking them on a journey through the pages of a storybook to fantastical places where they meet characters from different countries around the world. Remarkably, they witness bullfights, snake charmers, and the most amazing flower garden dancing in the wind.

On their way back after spending enchanted time together, the Nutcracker Prince wants Marie to stay with him. Drosselmeier separates them, holding onto Marie as the Nutcracker Prince

herself dreaming and wakes up. She realizes that everything must come to an end and she is delighted by memories of a wonderful world filled with beautiful music, travel and adventure, evoking the timeless and magical spirit of the holidays that she will fondly remember for years to come.

He was a principal dancer with the Royal Danish Ballet for two years before joining the San Francisco Ballet (SFB) as a principal dancer in 1994. During his 12 years dancing with SFB, he began choreographing. Upon retirement from dancing, he joined the artistic staff at SFB as choreographerHein-residence.haschoreographed

Nutcracker

TheMakingScenery

The Inspiration

“I spent a lot of time examining the collages of America artist Joseph Cornell. They have an exciting mix of elements I wanted to convey - a playful, modern, and slightly surreal feeling, and a contemporary use of period imagery. This was key for me in finding the aesthetic for the show and contributed to my decision to make it look like a huge three-dimensional scrapbook or

–storybook.”TomPye, Set Designer

The Collaboration

“One of the key things is establishing the nature of the finish surfaces for each piece…color, texture, etc. If you have already a working shorthand and a mutual trust with the set designer, then that process is easier. The lovely thing with set designer Tom Pye is that he trusts the CTS creative team to really push the boundaries to such an extent that some of those scenic pieces become standalone pieces of art.”

Cardiff Theatrical Services (CTS) in Cardiff, Wales, built the scenery for The Nutcracker. CTS has built sets for Welsh National Opera, London 2012 Olympics, BBC Worldwide and many other clients.

A Costume Approach

It takes a village to dress The Nutcracker cast.

These are just a few of the behind-thescenes specialists who helped costume designer Sandra Woodall transform her sketches from paper to production.

Selecting and purchasing materials

Costume supervisor Cathy Hill helped Sandra choose fabrics and liaise with all the dyers, makers, milliners and tailors, in order to bring everything together on time and on budget.

Wanted to achieve

Nicola Killeen is a real artist with color. She runs an amazing workshop in London where she dyes, paints and digitally prints fabrics. Sandra has enjoyed collaborating with her and discussing the painterly effect she wanted to achieve in this production of The Nutcracker.

Mask-making

Few people haven’t already seen the work of mask and prop maker Robert Allsopp. His work has appeared in Batman, Harry Potter and even the recent James Bond movies. Robert made the mice and many other masks that you will see on stage.

The Inspiration

“Costume designer Sandra Woodall’s designs are based in the early 1800s, known as the Regency period. They are lush, rich and hope to evoke a magical feeling. The aim is that the dancers will appear as if in a painting while they perform on stage.”

The Look & Feel

“From the moment we first laid eyes upon Sandra’s designs, the race was on to turn the two-dimensional drawings into three-dimensional costumes. Fabrics are chosen not just for the way they look but also for the way that they will envelop a dancer’s body and flow with their movements.

“After form, function and durability are key factors when making costumes for ballet. Next, prototypes are created and presented to the artistic director for approval. Overall, many thousands of hours of work will be done, including multiple fittings and dress rehearsals, before all is revealed when the curtain rises on opening night.”

- Jane Gill, Parkinson GillLtd.

Parkinson Gill Ltd. has created costumes for The Royal Opera House in London and many other major European opera and ballet companies, as well as The Metropolitan Opera in New York and Joffrey Ballet Chicago. Pictured here are Sandra Woodall (standing) and Jane Gill of Parkinson Gill Ltd. fitting dancers in Atlanta.

Light, Camera, Action!

The Collaboration

“I have worked with Nutcracker choreographer Yuri Possokhov on and off for the past 10 years. He has a joyful, fresh, inspirational and heartfelt take on all the work he produces. His spirit and process bring you right back to the core of what is important in the theater. He has the inherent ability to connect to the heart and soul of his audience. He deeply understands human emotion and how the theater can make us reflect on what is important in our own lives.

“Also, I love the Atlanta Ballet. I have been here to design The Four Seasons, The Exiled, Classical Symphony, Camino Real, The Firebird, and have had my 7 for Eight reproduced here. The Company is incredibly supportive and a load of fun to work with.”

-David Finn, Lighting Designer

David Finn’s previous work with Atlanta Ballet includes The Four Seasons, The Exiled, and Camino Real, for which he also completed his first professional scenic design.

Creating Magic

The Inspiration

“The work of [visual artist] Joseph Cornell has been a huge inspiration, especially for the overture. We’ve tried to make the overture into a living version of one of his vitrines. We have also been looking at a lot of fairly Germanic 18th century etchings and concepts of technology of the time to realize Drosselmeier’s workshop.”

The Look and Feel

“There is a broad reach in the design. The story of The Nutcracker is wild and varied, so we’ve cast the net fairly wide, going for a fantasy story book, living collage feel full of a lot of detail and nuance.”

Award-winning video designer Finn Ross is part of the creative team that designed Disney's FROZEN The Broadway Musical.

All of the children performing in this world-premiere production of The Nutcracker are students at the Atlanta Ballet Centre for Dance Education.

We held auditions in August at the Michael C. Carlos Dance Centre in West Midtown, and out of 290 hopefuls, we selected 168 talented students to perform roles ranging from Party Children and Toy Soldiers to Young Mice, Chicks and Stars.

Sixteen gymnasts, ages 9 to 16, from local metro Atlanta gyms were cast to perform the roles of Star Acrobats.

We are confident that some of the students you see in The Nutcracker today will pirouette into professional dance careers and delight audiences for years to come.

Atlanta Ballet is dedicated to providing opportunities for the students who attend our Centre for Dance Education to experience the art of performance at a professional level and learn directly from the Company dancers with whom they share the stage.

In fact, enrollment at the school is one of the criteria to be invited to audition for a role in The Nutcracker cast.

We offer a variety of dance classes for children ages 2 through adult –including creative movement, ballet, tap, jazz, hip-hop, modern and musical theatre – at three convenient locations in West Midtown, Buckhead and Virginia-Highland.

Atlanta Ballet 2

TheAtlanta Ballet 2 dancers are selected from all over the world and represent the artistic vision of Artistic Director Gennadi Nedvigin. These young individuals are dancers who have arrived at a defining point in their transitions to becoming professional dancers. They receive individual classes and coaching from esteemed faculty mentors. The intense level of training, opportunities to rehearse with the Atlanta Ballet company, and the experiences of their own performances help mold the young artists’ awareness of the high expectations demanded of professional company members.

Atlanta Ballet 2 dancers performed "Dust in the Wind" with the rock band KANSAS on the Atlanta and Nashville stops of their 40th anniversary tour. Members of Atlanta Ballet 2 also choreographed on their fellow members during the Georgia Tech Arts: Skyline Series festival last spring. Most recently, Atlanta Ballet 2 dancers performed at the Buckhead Village Holiday Shop & Stroll.

In addition to Atlanta Ballet 2 performing in The Nutcracker, you can see this talented young ensemble as they dance Bruce Wells' Snow White at Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre in February.
