A series of interviews with the Nutcracker! creative and technical team to explore the Production Elements involved in staging a production of this scale. Scroll down for an exclusive peek backstage and see how it all comes together in our production photography gallery.
A production on this scale requires a huge team of people – both on and off stage – to bring it to its audiences. For this latest national tour of Nutcracker! Matthew gathered back together many of his original team of collaborators; as well as some new ones.
New Adventures relies on the skills of lots of people who think creatively and enjoy using their imagination. These all form part of the team of ‘creatives’ that determine what the show will look, feel and sound like, including...
Matthew Bourne: Director & Choreographer
Anthony Ward: Designer (Set & Costumes)
Howard Harrison: Lighting Designer
Brett Morris: Music Director and Principal Conductor
Paul Groothius: Sound Designer
Duncan McLean: Projection Designer
