VIDEO: The Making of A Dancer's Dream

Alan Gilbert and the Orchestra won’t be alone onstage when they perform Stravinsky’s The Fairy’s Kiss and Petruskha as part of A Dancer's Dream. Far from it.

They'll be joined by 30 dancing miniature mountains, 40 hand-cranked clouds, 1 million individual snow flakes, 75 floating bubbles, 1 star ballerina (the incomparable New York City Ballet principal dancer Sara Mearns), 3 puppeteers, and 1 atmosphericist.

Check out this exclusive making-of video in which the giants behind Giants Are Small, director/designer Doug Fitch and producer Edouard Getaz, and Alan Gilbert explain how they have blended music with ballet, live film-making, pre-recorded video, puppetry, circus arts, costuming, and more.
