This year, under the direction of Greensboro Ballet’s new Artistic Director, Christine Cervino Grider, there will be a few changes to the traditional Nutcracker.  In an effort to be more culturally sensitive, the dances in the second act will no longer be characters from different countries. The Act 2 Land of the Dolls will include beautiful and fun dolls and stuffed animals. For example, instead of Russian dancers, a Matryoshka (aka Nesting Dolls) will perform to that classic, well-known part of Tchaikovsky’s score!

The Nutcracker tells the story of young Clara as she and her family celebrate the season with a lively Christmas party.  At the party, Clara’s Uncle Drosselmeyer gives her a magnificent Nutcracker which becomes the centerpiece of her magical dreams.

Guests at the Tea with Clara events will enjoy delicious tea and treats, create a craft, learn Clara’s lullaby dance, take home fun goody bags, and get to meet Clara and her friends from the ballet story.

Nutcracker Tickets will run from $20-$45 with special discounts for children, students, seniors, & the military.  Tea with Clara tickets will be $30/person.  (Prices do not include Theatre restoration fees, taxes, or other convenience fees).

Tickets go on sale October 24, 2022 at Noon through the Carolina Theatre Box Office. Online at or by calling 336-333-2605 during box office hours

(Monday-Friday, Noon-5pm).
