Carolina Ballet's The Nutcracker

Carolina Ballet is currently staging a completely reworked version of The Nutcracker. This is the first time for about 10 years that a full dress rehearsal has been held in order to update the photo portfolio. We took over 2000 images at the dress and are busy working through them now for Carolina Ballet to use in future publicity materials. Due to popular demand here's a few preview shots for viewing over the Christmas holiday.
