Carolina Ballet Theatre proudly presents The Nutcracker: Once Upon A Time in Greenville– a European inspired production that brings all of Clara’s adventures and excitement home to Greenville. Continuing our reinvented holiday classic, the production highlights Victorian societal expectations and prosperity while Clara and her beloved Nutcracker dance their way through the cherished landmarks and stunning scenery of Greenville and into the hearts of the audience.
The libretto is adapted from E.T. A. Hoffmann’s classic story, The Nutcracker and the Mouse King. Choreographed by Herman Justo, the refreshed ballet is based on the original Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov ballet.
On opening night, Carolina Ballet Theatre has the distinct privilege to host guest artists from internationally renowned ballet companies – Herman Cornejo, Principal at American Ballet Theater and Oksana Maslova, Principal at Pennsylvania Ballet. All 3 performances are brought to life by a 100+ person cast including CBT Company dancers and guest dancers from Georgia Ballet and Charlotte Ballet.
Additionally, this year CBT has partnered with SC Football Hall of Fame to bring a surprise celebrity athlete to the stage, showcasing how athleticism spans from field to stage.
