Guided Tour of Nutcracker The Exhibition: 60 Years of Magic and Majesty

Followed by the Nutcracker reading, what better guide to comment other than Alun Jones, the Artistic Director for the Louisville Ballet. Jones worked from 1978-2002, and set a precedent for staging classical ballet after he joined in 1975, which reflects the importance of the current director Robert Curran. He created new choreography for the Nutcracker and in 1995, he gave the production updated costumes and sets.
