I spent most of December overseeing the remount of my design for Inland Pacific Ballet’s Nutcracker. We performed at Bridges Auditorium in Claremont, Fox Performing Arts Center in Riverside, and Lewis Family Playhouse in Rancho Cucamonga. Early next year, I’ll be returning to all three venues to design their production of Cinderella.
Today we opened the final venue of Inland Pacific Ballet’s three-venue tour of The Nutcracker. It’s a lovely production and I think everyone involved is quite proud of it. Here is an early production photo:
I should have a full portfolio page up in the next week or two. Up next: a few weeks off followed by designing Rocky Horror and Mean Girls at Rockwell Table & Stage.
The 2016-16 Metropolitan Opera season has come to a close. It was an amazing place to work for the last three years.
After three amazing seasons at the Met, my wife and I have decided to move to Los Angeles for a number of reasons. I’ll be heading out there at the end of June and will be rebuilding this website, and be available for work starting at the beginning of July.
Coming up next is NYC Ballet’s spring Season, which features a revival of “River of Light” which has not been seen since before I started working at NYCB. It includes several lighting effects that are essentially part of the choreography but were created with equipment that is no longer available. Remounting it should be a unique but interesting challenge.
Tomorrow I’m heading to Washington, D.C. for another visit with the ballet to the Kennedy Center. From there, we’ll fly directly to Copenhagen for a week of performances at the Copenhagen Opera House. I’ve never been to Scandinavia before so I am very excited about this tour.
I’m back from my honeymoon and on the train to Washington, D.C. where the NYC Ballet will be performing next week. We visit every year and it’s always a great experience. I’m looking forward to it. When we get back to New York we load in our spring season.
