The Nutcracker: A Virtual Gala Event

December 13 @ 4:30 pm 5:30 pm

Sweeten your holiday season with Charlottesville Ballet’s live virtual gala event presented by CAPTRUST. Even though we can’t be together in the theater, we are bringing together our dancers and patrons on a live virtual stage — black tie NOT required!

We’ve recreated some of your favorite scenes from The Nutcracker (with our company dancers performing safely in studios across the globe) and will share excerpts from past stage productions to celebrate the magic of the Ballet’s beloved holiday tradition.

Get dressed up, grab a cocktail, and gather the family…or join your loved ones safely from your separate homes in your pajamas! An hour of entertainment – dance, music, and laughter – will be a welcome visit to the joyous nostalgia of the holidays. 

Your ticket supports the Ballet and our artists across the globe this holiday season. Only one “ticket” is required per household and patrons will be emailed a unique link to the broadcast, which can only be viewed on one device at a time. A recording of the Gala will also be available for seven days after the live event!

Quirk Hotel has specialty curbside cocktails, mocktails, and food so you can enjoy the Gala with delicious local fare! Check out for information on curbside pick up or to see the Nutcracker Gala cocktail recipe you can make at home!
