As promised, here are some photos of Ratmansky’s new Nutcracker for ABT.
I forgot to mention in my last post how much I loved the Alice in Wonderland-like high chair for Clara to sit atop to watch the mice / nutcracker & soldier battle scene. Really brilliant sets. Richard Hudson is a genius.
The battle scene and the many-headed mouse king.
The mischievous little mouse (Justin Souriau-Levine) holds the nutcracker doll.
David and Gillian in the final pas de deux.
