The Nutcracker feat. The Ballet Conservatory of Asheville

Bardo Arts Center 199 Centennial Drive, Cullowhee

Founded in 1964, the Ballet Conservatory of Asheville will again visit the campus of Western Carolina University to perform two performances of the holiday favorite ballet, The Nutcracker. Join Bardo Arts Center for a magically festive, full-length version of The Nutcracker featuring professional classical dancers and the Ballet Conservatory of Asheville’s celebrated pre-professional company. Having crept downstairs at midnight on Christmas Eve to play with her new Nutcracker doll, a young girl is swept up in a fantasy of toy soldiers, giant rats, snow fairies, magic, and mystery. After saving her beloved Nutcracker from the King of the Rats, she is whisked away to an enchanted land and dances the night away, meeting a host of enchanting and exotic characters.
