The Carolina Ballet‘s performance of The Nutcracker opens December 16 and runs through December 24 at Raleigh Memorial Auditorium.
Carolina Ballet’s production of The Nutcracker features a cast of over 100 dancers and children accompanied by a live orchestra of classical musicians, lavish redesigned scenery and stunning beautiful costumes.
This production features cutting edge magic designed by illusionist Rick Thomas. When Clara’s godfather, Dr. Drosselmeyer, makes toys come to life, people shrink and then reappear out of thin air, and characters levitate high above the stage. The Christmas tree grows to enormous heights to begin Clara’s journey to the Land of the Sweets, a truly magical place where it snows indoors, candy canes dance, and boats fly.
