Performances of "The Nutcracker" got under way Wednesday at the Grand Opera House in Macon. The performances run through Sunday.
The cast of 130 includes six professional dancers, all of them dancing in this production for the first time.
Rebuilt trough lights are part of this year’s improvements, which enhance the foreground and reduce on-stage obstruction of the dancers’ feet.
Managing Director Marianna Gebara said tickets are still available for all performances.
