Help us bring The Nutcracker to life with live orchestra in 2023!

Charlottesville Ballet is teaming up with the Charlottesville Symphony again for an exciting collaboration this holiday season. For the first time, we will be commissioning a 25-member orchestra for eight performances of The Nutcracker in both Lynchburg and Charlottesville, adding approximately $40,000 to production costs.

As of November 28, we’ve raised $36,000 of the $40,000 goal

Generous supporters like you make these artistic collaborations possible, and we hope you’ll help bring the magic of live music to our production!
