Matt Webb creates lighting design for The Nutcracker

Assistant Clinical Professor Matt Webb recently created a new lighting design for an established production of The Nutcracker, seen by over 2000 patrons over a two-day period and featuring soloists from Houston Ballet and New York City Ballet.

The Nutcracker PosterMidland Festival Ballet and the West Texas Symphony partner each year to present their unique version of The Nutcracker, a holiday family favorite for countless American ballet companies and produced yearly by MFB since 1993. For this season's production, Matt joined an existing creative team and developed a new lighting design over a one-week residency, culminating in two public performances that the Midland Reporter-Telegram called "a classic must-see story."
