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.

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.
