Are You Going To Clara’s Holiday Party?
We’re excited to see you this weekend and next week for our seven performances of Toni Pimble’s The Nutcracker with Orchestra Next! Here are important details to know before you get to the show:
Hult Center COVID-19 Safety Policies
As we continue to navigate life through this pandemic, the health and safety of our patrons, staff, crew, dancers, and musicians is our top priority. There are protocols in place for COVID-19 testing, proof of full vaccination with identification, mask wearing, and social distancing at the Hult Center. Details are provided with your ticket purchase and can be found HERE.
Meet You In The Lobby
The lobby will open 60 minutes prior to the start of each show. Beverages and snacks are available from Hult Center concessions. Get a selfie with friends and family in the festively decorated lobby! Don’t forget to pick-up your pre-ordered treasures from the Nutcracker Boutique! Our dancers will not be staffing an in-person Nutcracker Boutique as we continue our efforts to keep everyone healthy and safe, so be sure to order ahead HERE! Intermission is after The Winter Land scene and lasts 30 minutes. The performance run time is 2 hours.
The Nutcracker Boutique
Fill stockings and check off gifts on your list! Shop online at our Nutcracker Boutique where you’ll also find Eugene Ballet apparel. We’ll have your purchase ready to pick up at the Hult Center Nutcracker performance you’re attending, or at the Midtown Arts Center. More details HERE.
Be a Ballet Insider
We’re continuing our new video-based format of giving Eugene Ballet fans an “insiders” look into each performance. Enjoy behind-the-scenes interviews, fun facts, and stories (there’s a rumor that “Shop Talk with Drosselmeyer” has made a comeback) in this special holiday edition. Find your seat in the Silva Concert Hall about 15 minutes prior to each show, or watch it now, HERE.

Our beautiful 48-page full-color printed Season Program Books and our 12-page Nutcracker Performance Inserts will be available at the Hult Center before you take your seat. Or CLICK HERE to enjoy the digital version with all seven cast lists, orchestra roster, and the Nutcracker story. Thank you to our publication advertisers and our performance sponsors!
