The Atlanta Ballet's Nutcracker extravaganza comes to glorious life on the sparkling stage at the Fox, complete with beautiful fairies, handsome princes, dancing snowflakes and a lovely young girl on her way to the Sugar Candy Kingdom. With choreography by John McFall and Tchaikovsky's delightful score played live by the Atlanta Ballet Orchestra, it's a traditional holiday treat that's been enchanting generations of Atlantans for more than 50 years. Adding to the excitement, the Georgia Youth Choir will be lending its talents to Act I's "Snow Scene," and for the first two weeks of the run, the mysterious Drosselmeyer will be played by master illusionist and America's Got Talent finalist Drew Thomas, bringing an extra touch of magic to the proceedings.

I enjoyed the Frank Sinatra soundtrack but was somewhat disappointed with the dancing. At times it seemed almost chaotic. I am currently watching So You Think You Can Dance on TV and the dancers this season are GREAT. Twyla Tharpe may be a well-known choreographer but those on SYTYCD are more to my liking. Comparing the two, this show came up lacking.
Quotes & Highlights
- "A dangerously gorgeous dance adventure." --Newsday
- "Delivers the purest jolt of pleasure to be found on a Broadway stage." --Time
- “Spectacular and dazzling. This is a major new work. Twyla Tharp’s electrifying celebration of the music of Frank Sinatra will sweep you up in a complete spell." --The New York Times
Come Fly Away follows four couples as they fall in and out of love during one song and dance filled evening at a crowded nightclub. Blending the legendary vocals of Frank Sinatra with a live on-stage big band and 14 of the world’s finest dancers, Come Fly Away weaves an unparalleled hit parade of classics, including “Fly Me to the Moon,” “My Way,” and “That’s Life,” into a soaring musical fantasy of romance and seduction.
The show’s score combines classic and newly discovered vocal performances from the Sinatra archives, along with Sinatra’s signature arrangements by Nelson Riddle, Billy May and Quincy Jones, among others, and brand new charts, for this fresh innovative musical.
