In the most recent episode of the podcast, Southwest Virginia Ballet Artistic Director Pedro Szalay and Executive Director Carol Jessee take us behind the scenes with the development of a Nutcracker for the pandemic, a version filmed for showing on and streaming through Blue Ridge PBS.
“If we keep learning together,” says Szalay, “we can accomplish a lot.” It’s the hallmark of a resilient community.
“We’ve had the support of many organizations and businesses,” says Jessee. The production has been shot at a number of iconic Roanoke sites, including the Hotel Roanoke, Berglund Center, the Taubman Museum of Art, and Fishburn Mansion. Get complete information on the production here.
