Behind the Scenes
With The Woodruff Arts Center
It takes a lot of creativity, training and experience to produce a new piece of theatre, perform a classical piece of music or mount a world-class art exhibit. But it happens all the time at The Woodruff Arts Center through the Alliance Theatre, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and the High Museum of Art.
All of that skill, talent and creativity is on display in this series of Behind the Scenes videos produced by the Woodruff Arts Center. In these videos, you’ll see how the Alliance takes words on a page to a production on the stage; how Robert Spano leads the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra; and how the High’s civil rights photography collection moves two icons of the civil rights movement. You’ll also see how the Arts Center’s commitment to arts education is brought to bear in two heart-warming stories.
