Nutcracker The Exhibition: 60 Years of Magic and Majesty
November 9, 2017 – January 7, 2018
Nutcracker: The Exhibition celebrates Louisville Ballet’s Nutcracker, a beloved holiday tradition in the Louisville community for six decades, from its early amateur company performances in the 1950s to the current lavish production of The Brown-Forman Nutcracker. The exhibition features original costumes and costume designs, stage models, set pieces, props, photographs, and other artifacts from Nutcracker performances past and present including the Sugar Plum Fairy’s tutu, the King Rat’s Cape, the Snow Queen’s tiara, and the original bowing nutcracker doll from the first Nutcracker staged in the Kentucky Center for the Arts in 1983. Visitors can also learn how many layers it takes to make a tutu, how stage technicians make it snow on stage, and what it’s like to be a member of the Nutcracker Children’s Cast through interactive displays and activities. Whether you’re a longtime fan or a Nutcracker novice, this exhibition is sure to inform and delight!
