Asheville Ballet Presents: The Nutcracker
December 12-14 at Diana Wortham Theatre
December 12 & 13, 7:30 pm
December 13 & 14, 2:30 pm
The beloved, traditional holiday ballet tells the timeless tale of a young girl’s magical visit to a dreamy Land of Sweets, where she encounters fabulous characters from all over the world, rescues The Nutcracker Prince from the evil Rat Queen, and is blessed by the beautiful Sugar Plum Fairy.
Magic is the word for the evening: from “real” snow on stage to a tea pot that produces dancing Chinese dolls. What’s new this year? An Acrobat Doll and Soldiers that will inspire young athletes, a Shepherd and Shepherdess that will become every budding male and female child’s dream, all new choreography for Waltz of the Flowers, a male solo for Ginger that will inspire young boys to move.
Asheville Ballet will offer a school show on Thursday morning December 11, so young people from all over our region can encounter the magical wonder of art, and its transformative power.
The Asheville Ballet is North Carolina’s oldest non-profit ballet company, and the region’s only year-round resident professional ballet company. Their Nutcracker is truly a community-wide production. For more information on Asheville Ballet’s programs please visit www.ashevilleballet.com.
“No dance task in our community is too small or too big for us.”
