Every year, hundreds of UNCSA students dance, play, design and produce Winston-Salem’s favorite holiday tradition, “The Nutcracker.” This year’s performance will welcome back our dear Mother Ginger, the boisterous opening party scene and feature more ballet dancers than ever before.
Faculty member Ilya Kozadayev’s choreography will continue to captivate and delight audiences of all ages. This fantastical winter wonderland unfolds against the captivating magic of Tchaikovsky’s timeless score, performed by The UNCSA Symphony Orchestra, led by acclaimed guest conductor Jiannan Cheng.
