The stage of the historic and beautiful Carolina Theatre will once again come to life this December as Greensboro Ballet’s sparkling tradition, The Nutcracker, delights another season of holiday audiences.

Greensboro Ballet’s The Nutcracker dates for the 2023 season include:

~ December 9 & 16 at 2:00pm & 7:00pm

~ December 10 & 17 at 3:00pm

From the moment you walk into a festively decorated Carolina Theatre, you are enveloped in the spirit of a classic tradition. A tradition that millions of others experience across the globe each holiday season. You can remember the afternoon or evening by taking a photo in front of a gorgeous, giant Christmas tree in the center of the lobby (under the sparkling lights of two magnificent chandeliers) and/or by purchasing a souvenir Nutcracker at their Nutcracker Boutique.

Since it’s early beginning as a Nutcracker Fashion Show fundraising event in 1980 (held in the basement of a church), to a full-length classical ballet production with lavish sets and costumes performed over two weekends each December at the Carolina Theatre, Greensboro Ballet’s The Nutcracker has evolved these past 40+ years into a holiday staple of the Greater Greensboro (& Triad) community.

Greensboro Ballet’s production has featured thousands of young dancers from the community performing a magical holiday classic which has enchanted at least 100K audience members over these many, many years.  .  . and the tradition continues this December for your family!

Another of Greensboro Ballet’s holiday traditions is its annual fundraising event, Tea with Clara.
