Angela Dittmar

Angela Dittmar

In Memory of Angela Dittmar

March 27, 1961 – April 22, 2021

Angela was a major contributor in building the current Ballet West Nutcracker costumes designed by David Heuvel. She was our Colleague, Our Confidant, Our Friend, Our Teacher. She knew the secret alchemy of love. She turned distance into closeness. Routine into adventure. Stillness into action. Illness into strength. Upset into empathy. Hurt into compassion. She was truly a Wonder of a Woman. She also leaves us wondering what the world will be like without her, but also grateful for the time we shared with this delightfully theatrical spirit.
