Nutcracker Ballet

Performances are December 6 at 2 pm and 8 pm; and December 7 at 2 pm.

Carolina Ballet’s holiday fantasy classic returns to Memorial Hall each season, capturing the irrepressible imagination of a child’s world in which all things are possible. Toys spring to life, children appear out of thin air and dancers float high above the stage in this spectacular production, with lavish scenery, and more than 100 performers. Garnering critical praise from the national and world media, Carolina Ballet has staged 80 world premiere ballets and toured internationally. Artistic Director/CEO Robert Weiss was artistic director of the Pennsylvania Ballet and principal dancer at New York City Ballet under the legendary George Balanchine.
