Continuing the 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.

All three main performances take place Friday, Dec. 13,  and Saturday, Dec. 14, at The Peace Center. The production is brought to life by a 100+ person cast including CBT Company dancers and guest dancers from the world’s most premier dance companies.
