The Nutcracker: Once Upon a Time in Greenville

Peace Concert Hall

Guest Principles from New York City Ballet and Miami City Ballet will be joining CBT on the opening night!

Adapted from the classic holiday story from E.T.A. Hoffmann’s story the Nutcracker and The Mouse King, this reinvented version is choreographed by and under the artistic direction of Hernan Justo. This holiday classic is based on the original Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov ballet and its brought to life by the Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsy (1180-1893) musical composition.

Continuing our reinvented holiday classic, Carolina Ballet Theatre presents The Nutcracker: Once Upon a Time in Greenville, bringing all of Clara’s adventures and excitement back home to Greenville. This European inspired production highlights Victorian societal expectations and prosperity all while Clara and her Nutcracker dance their way passed many cherished landmarks in Greenville. Don’t miss out on this Greenville classic!
