Carolina Ballet Theatre’s “The Nutcracker”

Carolina Ballet Theatre presents “The Nutcracker: Once Upon a Time” December 4th-6th at the Peace Center in Greenville. The libretto, adapted from E.T.A. Hoffmann’s story “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King,” is choreographed by Hernan Justo and is based on the original Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov ballet. Carolina Ballet Theatre reinvents this holiday classic with a Greenville inspired ballet, where the backdrops of the Liberty Bridge and the Greenville skyline are accompanied by dancing visions of snow, sweets, soldiers, and mice. Join Clara and her Nutcracker as they dance their way through Greenville to defeat the evil Mouse King. Performances are December 4 at 7:30pm, December 5 at 2pm & 7:30pm, and December 6 at 2pm.
