LA Ballet Opens Inaugural Season with Combo of Live & Virtual Players

Nutcracker

I just got a newsletter from Cakewalk  with a link to an interesting story from Broadcast Room.com about the use of a virtual orchestra in Los Angeles Ballet’s latest production.

"The Los Angeles Ballet launched its inaugural season at the Beverly
Hills Wilshire Theatre with an original production of ‘The
Nutcracker
.’  In a landmark first, 22 live musicians were augmented by
33 virtual players to round out the 55 musicians called for by the
Tchaikovsky score."

Ends up they only had room in the orchestra pit for 22 players yet wanted to play the full score – so they augmented real players with virtual players using Garritan Personal Orchestra (Learn more | Buy
).The software instrument was hosted out of Sonar 6 Producers Edition  (Learn More | Buy
). Gary Garritan even helped with the production.

The story also indicates that the "Musician’s Union Approves Landmark Use of Garritan Personal Orchestra" :^).
