Absolutely wonderful! The snow scene was magical. The set design and the costumes were beautiful, and the dancers were magnificent.

My daughter has been wanting to see this for the last couple of years, so I bought her tickets this for Christmas along with a musical snow globe that had ballerinas and played some of the music. She was thrilled! There was so much to take in...continued

the Joffrey Ballet Nutcracker was fabulous. I finally took my 10 year old daughter to "the real thing" and we were not disappointed! Loved the performance - just dazzling!

About the Ticket Supplier: The Joffrey Ballet

Robert Joffrey and Gerald Arpino's uniquely American vision of dance first took form in 1956. The original company consisted of six dynamic and highly individual dancers. While Robert Joffrey stayed in New York to teach ballet classes and earn money to pay the dancers' salaries, Gerald Arpino led the troupe across America's heartland, in a station wagon that pulled a U-Haul trailer. Their repertoire of original ballets by Robert Joffrey set them apart from other small touring companies, who often performed scaled-down versions of the classics. From the beginning, Joffrey and Arpino wanted a company that came out of their roots, out of America.
