Charlotte Symphony To Stream The Nutcracker: How To Buy Tickets


CHARLOTTE, NC — While the pandemic has shut down many public holiday events this year, The Nutcracker will go on, thanks to the Charlotte Symphony. A family-friendly adaptation of the beloved holiday classic is one of three events the orchestra is streaming on demand this season.

The symphony’s performance calendar was wiped out this year due to the ongoing pandemic, with at least 11 live concert events cancelled though the end of the year.

“Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, previously scheduled live concerts through December 31, 2020 will be replaced with an exciting array of virtual concerts and smaller-format/ limited-capacity live outdoor performances as safety permits,” the orchestra said. “The Charlotte Symphony will work to gradually phase in live, indoor audiences as local conditions safely allow.”
