In this special tenth installment of “Offstage and Unbound,” The Music Center’s President and CEO Rachel Moore chats with celebrated Cuban-American artist/designer couple Isabel and Ruben Toledo, the geniuses behind the unique style of the new George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker® by Miami City Ballet. Over the course of a year, the Toledos were responsible for designing dozens of sets and 150 costumes that will belong to this new Nutcracker (with a world premiere at The Music Center on December 7, 2017.) Strongly anchored in Cuban culture yet highly individualistic, the Toledos were inspired by the original New York City Ballet designs, Peter Ilyitch Tchaikovsky’s timeless score and Balanchine’s iconic choreography.
