Western Carolina University presents the Ballet Conservatory of Asheville bringing their fourth Nutcracker tour to the Bardo Arts Center Performance Hall Friday, Dec. 10, at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, Dec. 11, at 3 p.m.

This full-length Nutcracker production features professional classical dancers and the Ballet Conservatory of Asheville’s celebrated company.

In this classic ballet, Clara’s holiday dream comes to life, sneaking downstairs at midnight with her beloved new Nutcracker doll. Swept up in a fantasy toy-soldier battle, she saves her Nutcracker from the Mouse King. She is then whisked away to enchanted lands of snow and sweets, dancing the night away with a colorful host of captivating characters.
