The Grand Rapids Ballet announces its 2014-15 season.....
A fourth season of "Movemedia," blending the familiar elements of choreography, costumes, sets and props with digital media and other new technologies, rounds out Grand Rapids Ballet's 43rd season.
....and a new Nutcracker in the works.
Grand Rapids native Chris Van Allsburg is designing the production with Tony Award-winning designer Eugene Lee. It will be choreographed by Val Caniparoli, winner of an Isadora Duncan Dance Award for Choreography.
A $2.5 million fundraising campaign, in part, is providing for the 42-year-old company's first entirely new production of "The Nutcracker" in three decades.
