Carolina Ballet Theatre's Updated Nutcracker Ballet
Carolina Ballet Theatre brings it on home this Christmas with their joyful production of The Nutcracker: Once Upon A Time In Greenville. The thrilling adaptation of E.T.A Hoffman's festive classic is given a distinct Carolina twist thanks to its setting in the home city of the world class company and choreography based on Lev Ivanov and Marius Petipa's cherished ballet. Don your merriest holiday jumper and gather the family, you won't want to miss this highlight of the local Yuletide entertainment calendar.
Shining a light on the Victorian era's strict societal pressures and juxtaposed prosperity, the production's 100+ strong ensemble cast, Carolina Ballet Theatre principal dancers and special guest performers from the Georgia and Charlotte Ballets bring Clara's story to vivid life. Taking an adventure through Greenville, the heroine and her Nutcracker Prince whirl around beloved landmarks and city scenery, whilst the fearsome Mouse King and enchanting Sugar Plum Fairy wait in the wings.
