The Nutcracker from the Ballet Conservatory of Asheville

December 10 @ 7:30 pm - December 11 @ 3:30 pm

The Ballet Conservatory returns for its 4th Nutcracker tour to Western Carolina University, in its 12th season. Their magically festive, full-length Nutcracker production, features professional classical dancers and the Ballet Conservatory of Asheville’s celebrated company.

Clara’s holiday dream comes to life, sneaking downstairs at midnight with her beloved new Nutcracker doll. Swept up in a fantasy toy-soldier battle, she saves her Nutcracker from the Mouse King. She is then whisked away to enchanted lands of snow and sweets, dancing the night away with a colorful host of captivating characters.
