The Wilmington Ballet Company premiers a newly formed professional division in the Great Wilmington Nutcracker!

Walter Angelini and Ines Albertini, Italian Ballet Stars, perform the roles of Sugar Plum and Cavalier as well as serve as artistic leaders.

As a winner of Encore Magazine’s “Best Theatrical Show in Wilmington”, the production features many unique elements including aerial artists, stilt walkers, LED effects and more. Majestic sets, stunning costumes, and intricate choreography create an enchanting holiday experience. Deemed spectacular by Arthur Sheuy of The StarNews, this magnificent production is not to be missed! Daniel Seamans (Anchor WWAY) is master of ceremonies of the treasured holiday classic. Local youth dancers accent professionals and bring delightful elements to the production. With past shows selling out, Tickets go quickly.
