ORLANDO, FL – Monday, July 24, 2023 – As part of its 50th Anniversary celebration, Orlando Ballet will host a special pre-season ticket sales event for the premiere of Artistic Director Jorden Morris’ new production of The Nutcracker. Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m., Tuesday, July 25. Information is available at OrlandoBallet.org. Performances will run through December 8-24, 2023.
Morris has spent three years developing an entirely new production of the holiday classic. While preserving the story and, of course, Tchaikovsky’s iconic music, Morris has created stunning new choreography, eye-popping sets, costumes and lighting. Thanks to the efforts of an elite team of artists, including Associate Artistic Director Lisa Vinzant; Robert Perdziola who designed the new colorful costumes and sets, and Joseph Walls who creates true magic with his lighting designs, the audience is in for an unforgettable experience.
“Creating any new ballet from scratch is a massive undertaking,” Morris said. “The Nutcracker carries a special responsibility of protecting its traditions and all that is loved about this ballet. We’ve taken great care to preserve the traditions while creating an imaginative and memorable holiday experience for everyone.”
After 30 years, it was time to create a new production, said Executive Director Cheryl Collins. “The Nutcracker is part of every ballet company’s DNA, but it’s also part of our community, which is why we chose to make this investment in creating an entirely new production. It’s another way for us to thank our community for its support as we celebrate our 50th anniversary. It is all just so exciting.”
