9 PLACES TO SEE THE NUTCRACKER BALLET IN THE GREATER CHARLOTTE AREA THIS HOLIDAY SEASON

Are You A Nutcracker Ballet Fan?

Is attending a performance of the Nutcracker Ballet a Christmas tradition for your family?

 

Attending a performance of the Nutcrack Ballet was a tradition I grew up with. Seeing the New York City Ballet perform George Balanchine's Nutcracker Ballet each Christmas season is where I first developed my love of the ballet. The tradition of attending a performance of The Nutcracker is still something I look forward to each holiday season.

 

If you're Nutcracker Ballet fan, Charlotte offers numerous venues throughout the Charlotte region in the month of December to attend and enjoy this much beloved ballet and Tchaikovsky's beautiful music (including even a hip hop version of the ballet).

 

CHARLOTTE BALLET:  December 9-23 at the Belk Theatre in Uptown Charlotte. More information about tickets for the Charlotte Ballet's Nutcracker performances during December. Tickets start at $25.

YMCA NUTCRACKER BALLET (20th Anniversary Performance): Harris YMCA Performing Company is presenting The Nutcracker on December 17th and 18th. Tickets are $15 to $20. Performances are at Halton Theatre at Central Piedmont Community College.

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP hi Patricia... you should definitely put The Nutcracker on your bucket list... everyone should see it at least once in a great theatre. Ballet is a tough taskmaster. Like many little girls I would have loved to be a ballerina... but really don't have the body shape for it. I collect ballerina Christmas ornaments and get to the ballet as often as I can.

Norma J. Elkins I'm delighted that your daughter-in-law and your granddaughters keep up this tradition... it's something to look forward to each year. That is one thing I do miss from my life in New York City... the annual trip to Lincoln Center to watch The Nutcracker.

Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty hi Jeff... so glad you've had that Nutcracker experience. I always say people who haven't had it don't know what they are missing.

Bob "RealMan" Timm exactly, Bob... that's why it never gets "old." While the story and the music remain the same, the productions differ. I've seen the same ballets in cities all over the world and it's a "new" experience each time.

Hi Nina Hollander, Broker - I have never seen the Nutcracker Ballet...ever.   I did look at your video snippets, and the old saying comes into focus..."You don't know what you are missing!"  Even though we have an excellent theatre in Sedona, I have not seen any marketing for this ballet.  I guess our market is too small.

Joan Cox hi Joan...hopefully you will be well enough to do so. I have a client who got over the basic covid quickly, but had what he called fog brain for at least another month.

The brain fog is real, but much better today!

Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - Wanda Can! good morning, Wanda... once the pandemic hit, things got very quiet here in Charlotte when it came to Nutcracker productions. I'm so happy things are back to normal.
