The University of North Carolina School of the Arts (UNCSA) production of “The Nutcracker”is an eagerly anticipated Winston-Salem holiday tradition. This professional-caliber production of Tchaikovsky’s world-famous “The Nutcracker” ballet draws around 10,000 people to the streets of downtown and to UNCSA’s Stevens Center during its ten-show run.
A First-Rate Production
Stunning sets, exquisite costumes, phenomenal dancing and special effects make this a top-notch production and a favorite of families and lovers of the arts. Audiences are dazzled by falling snow, rolling fog, and an enormous expanding fiber optic Christmas tree.
UNCSA’s production is the only “The Nutcracker” performance in the Triad to be accompanied by a live orchestra. Jared Redick, Assistant Dean of Ballet at UNCSA School of Dance, will serve as the production’s Director and the performance will be conducted by Karin Hendrickson.
On Saturday, September 28, 2019, from 10am-noon, a FREE kick-off event for the performance ticket sales will be held at the Stevens Center featuring children’s activities, crafts, face painting and photo opportunities with characters from “The Nutcracker.” During the event, tickets may be purchased at a discount.
