The Nutcracker For The Next Generation: Part Two, Lighting Design

The Nutcracker has become a holiday tradition for many, but this most recent Christmas season witnessed the ballet like it’s never been seen before.

For Atlanta Ballet's 24th season of The Nutcracker, held December 8-24, 2018 at the Fox Theatre, artistic director Gennadi Nedvigin and world-class choreographer Yuri Possokhov wanted to reimagine the Christmas classic. To do so, they called on award-winning and nominated designers: Tom Pye, sets; Finn Ross, projections; David Finn, lighting; and Sandra Woodall, costumes.
