Asheville Ballet Nutcracker

Asheville Ballet has built a reputation on the belief that dance plays a vital role in the education and culture of the community.

As a key component of its Educational Outreach Program, The Asheville Ballet will perform its entire production of the holiday classic The Nutcracker for school children on Thursday, Dec. 6, at 9 a.m. at the Diana Wortham Theatre. Seating is limited and confirmed on a first come first served basis. Thanks to generous patronage, we are able to offer children’s tickets at $5 again this year.

The show, including intermission, lasts almost two hours. This is the real professional deal: original Russian choreography, men leaping, women twirling, jazzy rats, waltzing flowers, and a magical snow scene.  

For reservations call or write Ann Dunn, Director at 828-215-3728 or
