The Nutcracker: Once Upon a Time in Greenville

The Peace Center
December 22nd, Friday at 7:00pm
December 23rd, Saturday at 2:30pm & 7:00pm

Back by popular demand, CBT will have three performances of The Nutcracker: Once Upon a Time in Greenville this holiday season. 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. This season’s adaptation will feature guest artists from nationally renowned ballet companies, celebrity guests, new staging, new costumes, and a surprise musical feature. Perhaps the sweetest treat for all will take place during the Party Scene – side by side with our professional dancers, will be children with special needs performing live.
