"The nutcracker sits under the holiday tree, a guardian of childhood stories. Feed him walnuts, and he will crack open a tale." - Vera Nazarian.

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.

Visit Bardo Arts Center and see young Clara befriend a nutcracker that comes to life on Christmas Eve and wages a battle against the evil Mouse King. Watch as she is whisked away to an enchanted land filled with snow, sweets, and colorful characters that help her on her journey.

We look forward to seeing you at The Nutcracker on Friday, December 9, 2022, at 7:30pm, or Saturday, December 10, 2022, at 3:00pm. Doors will open to the performance 30 min before the show is set to start.
