Creating Enchanting Worlds for The Nutcracker Ballet

About the Video

The Nutcracker Ballet is a beloved story that has captivated audiences for generations. As the founder and creative director of Theatre Avenue, Mitch Stark is on a mission to bring the magic of this timeless tale to life through innovative digital projections.

At Theatre Avenue, Mitch and his team are dedicated to creating dynamic backdrops for productions of all sizes. They are especially excited about their latest project – designing projections for The Nutcracker performance by the Savannah Ballet. The Theatre Avenue team has taken a meticulous approach to this project, immersing themselves in different illustrated versions of the story, including the original book by E.T.A. Hoffmann and Maurice Sendak's iconic illustrations.

With digital projections, the team have the opportunity to bring an extra layer of dreamlike magic to the performance. From subtle effects like slowly drifting clouds to falling snow, these projections add to the story without taking away from the dancers. The team's ultimate goal is to leave audiences inspired and to play a small role in inspiring the next generation of artists. After all, there is something truly special about experiencing a story together.
