Acclaimed Designer Sam Meredith to Revamp Timeless Classic

Pittsfield, MASS — Albany Berkshire Ballet will hold an immersive fundraiser performance event Sunday, August 14, supporting a major costume update to the company’s beloved production. 

Along with food, live music and dance performance, attendees will get a glimpse into the process as designer Sam Meredith presents a preview of some of the new costumes for ABB’s The Nutcracker as it returns to stages later this year. Choreographed by Artistic Director Madeline Culpo, The Nutcracker will be entering its 47th season this year, with performances in Pittsfield, Albany, Springfield and Burlington.

Entertainment will include a debut live film screening of Eric Otto’s original work “Cerelia,” along with dancers Ruslan Sprague, Rachael Weber, and  Mila Krol, Luciella Curletti, and Lucy Gregg with performing choreography by Danielle Price.

Heavy ouer d’oeuvres will be served, along with a cash bar. Unique themed gift baskets will be raffled off to help support the company’s investment in new costumes.

At this event, ABB will also make a major announcement about the launch of a new community program funded by the American Rescue Plan Act, in conjunction with the City of Pittsfield.
