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

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 his sister, Erica Cornejo, Principal at Boston Ballet. All 3 performances are brought to life by a 100+ person cast including CBT Company dancers: Laura Mortimer, Meghan Loman, and Martin Justo-Bernardez, along with Matt Harvey, Madeline Jazz Harvey, Peter Base, Francesca Genovese and Lance Hardin.

Additionally, this year CBT has partnered with SC Football Hall of Fame to bring surprise celebrity athletes to the stage, showcasing how athleticism spans from field to stage. Perhaps the sweetest treat for all will be The Meyer Center for Special Children students dancing side by side with our professional dancers.
