Cincinnati Ballet’s Brave Little Bees

A bee's eye view from 30 feet up

“Flying,” as its known in the world of theater, is when harnesses and wires are used to suspend a performer above the stage floor. It can be a nerve-racking experience, even for seasoned dancers. But in Frisch’s Big Boy Presents The Nutcracker, the bees flying in from 30 feet up aren’t seasoned dancers, they’re children! Each year two young performers get the ride of a lifetime and become one of the most talked about Nutcracker moments in Cincinnati. See how it’s done in this behind-the-scenes video featuring point of view footage!
