Virtual: UNC School of the Arts Presents “The Nutcracker” Livestream and On Demand
December 18, 2020
An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating until December 25, 2020
The schools of Dance, Design & Production, Filmmaking, and Music will collaborate for the first time to create a 30-minute version of the beloved classic adapted for the screen. Directed by Interim Dean of Dance Jared Redick with all-new choreography by faculty member Ilya Kozadayev, the production honors the memorable story while reflecting modern sensibilities. Rosemary Harris delivers a brand new narration, while Guest Conductor Karin Hendrickson leads the UNCSA Symphony Orchestra performing excerpts from Tchaikovsky’s original orchestration. Student dancers will be filmed in UNCSA’s largest soundstage. Visual effects and CGI by Filmmaking students will bring the story to life. Sound designers and editors from Filmmaking will work with Design & Production and Music students to record the soundtrack.
