The beloved holiday tradition will find a new home at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre in 2020.
For 25 years, Atlanta Ballet has performed The Nutcracker in three different versions and for more than 500 performances. After premiering the beautifully reimagined show last year, 2019 will mark another major milestone for Atlanta Ballet’s Nutcracker – its last year at the Fox Theatre.
“It has been an honor to call the Fox Theatre ‘home’ every December for more than two decades,” says Arturo Jacobus, President & CEO of Atlanta Ballet.
“While we are going to miss its twinkling marquee, iconic starry sky, elaborate Moorish décor and, of course, our dear friend ‘Mighty Mo,’ we are thrilled to introduce audiences to a brand-new, state-of- the-art Nutcracker experience at the incredible Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre,” Jacobus says.
Atlanta Ballet’s recently premiered production of The Nutcracker features theatre technology that includes massive sets, groundbreaking projections, and elaborate lighting. As one of the top major performing arts facilities in the metro Atlanta area, Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre is well equipped to support the needs of the ultra-high-tech Nutcracker.
“We are delighted to welcome this gorgeous production and fantastical story ballet to our venue and celebrate one of the city’s most beloved holiday traditions,” said Michele Swann, General Manager/CEO of Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre.
