Since premiering in 1987, The Joffrey Ballet's production of The Nutcracker has become America's favorite Nutcracker, touring coast to coast more than any other. This beloved holiday masterpiece for the whole family features the entire ballet company, plus local children's choruses, young dancers and a full orchestra performing Tchaikovsky's famous score live. It's the magical tale of young Clara, whose Christmas gift of a nutcracker comes to life and brings her to a fantastic winter wonderland. With larger-than-life scenery and entertaining storytelling, Joffrey's performance is an evening of pure enchantment and a glorious holiday tradition. Learn More

We went to this performance on a lark, without having read or heard anything about Mr. Amodei beforehand, and we were blown away by his 90-minute show. While most of his illusions have a story or background to them (and so take a while to unfold), he throws in many quick tricks as well and his banter with the audience is refreshing and hilarious. We've been talking about many of his illusions for days after the performance, trying to figure out how on earth he accomplished what he did. (On a few of them, we think we figured out the only way they could have been pulled off, but we are still mystified as to how and when he did his sleight of hand. In any event, it's better not to think too much!) BTW, it's called "intimate" illusions because we're not talking David Copperfield here, we're talking about magic that's meant to be seen in a small space.
