Making magic isn't easy

Making magic on stage isn’t as easy as it looks. In order for Herr Drosselmeyer to fly in Cincinnati Ballet’s performance of Frisch’s Big Boy Presents The Nutcracker, it takes a group of stagehands and a lot coordination. We collected footage from Drosselmeyer’s point of view and backstage to show you what it’s like to go flying with Drosselmeyer.
