Written by 

art nutcrackerHoliday classic “The Nutcracker” will be performed at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 6, in the John W. Bardo Fine and Performing Arts Center at Western Carolina University.

More than 70 dancers from the Ballet Conservatory of Asheville will travel to Cullowhee to perform the show. Tchaikovsky’s “Nutcracker” ballet is the interpretation of a young girl’s dreamy Christmas Eve, including an epic battle between mice and an army of miniature soldiers, the transformation of a beloved nutcracker into a handsome prince and a journey to the land ruled by the Sugar Plum Fairy.

The event is sponsored by WCU’s Arts and Cultural Events Performance Series. Tickets are $10 per person.
