"The Nutcracker"

This year, THE holiday event in downtown Greensboro will be our very own sparkling production of The Nutcracker in the dazzling & newly renovated Carolina Theatre!

Greensboro Ballet invites you to bring your family & friends to the festive holiday tradition of the season! Swirling snowflakes, giant mice, dolls that come to life and sweets from around the world are just some of the characters you'll experience as you join Clara on her magical adventure.

This beloved story ballet is housed in the historic and renovated Carolina Theatre. We recently toured the Theatre and were blown away by all the changes! Gorgeous new carpeting, an updated Concessions stand, much larger & super pretty Women's bathrooms, new & plush seats in a sparkly clean auditorium with big new speakers and more. Decorated for the Christmas season, the Carolina Theatre will give our Nutcracker audiences an enchanting holiday experience like no other!
