Hendersonville Ballet Presents The Nutcracker
December 8 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Hendersonville Ballet presents the holiday classic, The Nutcracker, at Thomas Auditorium at Blue Ridge Community College on December 8, 9 and 10.
The Nutcracker (1892) is a two-act “fairy ballet” by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. It is set on Christmas Eve at the foot of a Christmas tree in a child’s imagination. The plot is an adaptation of E.T.A. Hoffman’s 1816 short story The Nutcracker and the Mouse King. The Ballet’s first choreographer was Marius Petipa, with whom Tchaikovsky had worked three years earlier on The Sleeping Beauty ballet.
Shows are Friday, December 8th at 7pm; Saturday, December 9th at 7pm; and Sunday December 10th at 3pm.
Tickets go on sale November 12th and will be available on line at https://stagestubs.com/us/hendersonville-ballet-company-1/the-nutcracker
