Guide Review - Atlanta Ballet Presents The Nutcracker
The Atlanta Ballet's Nutcracker at the Fox is a spectacle of sights and sounds. The beautiful set, elaborate costumes and exquisite dancing make this holiday tradition a must-see for the whole family. For opening weekend only, the Atlanta Ballet Orchestra provides the added dimension of live music. Unfortunately, the live orchestra has only a limited run due to budget constraints.
Although the audience was full of tiny tots--all decked out in their finest holiday attire, they must have been mesmerized by the sights and sounds, for they were quiet when appropriate and responsive at the right moments. Oohs and aahs filled the theater when snow actually fell on the audience!
The Nutcracker is a holiday outing perfect for date night, girls night out, a mother/daughter or daddy/daughter evening or a full family gathering.
