Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker is a holiday tradition and we have numerous options here in Atlanta for those hoping to catch a performance.

This weekend, the Georgia Ballet will be staging their production, which will feature a pair of special guest dancers: American Ballet Theatre’s Arron Scott as well as Sarah Lane, who moviegoers saw in Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan. We sat down with them and with Georgia Ballet Director Fiona Fairrie to talk about the show.

The Georgia Ballet’s production of The Nutcracker runs tonight through Sunday at the Cobb Civic Center. For more information, visit Atlanta PlanIt.
