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

The first two pieces, Forgotten Landscape and Pretty Ballet were well enough to forget and not so pretty. These first two pieces it seemed as though the dancers hadn't rehearsed with the music. The orchestra was phenomenal and the dancers never gave a moment to elaborate the music or feel it. The dancing part was sorely missing. Until The Green Table! They did NOT disappoint! Truly my favorite Ballet. And 'Death' was as magical as it gets. BRAVO!!!
The most awkward part of the show is the promo to sit through on the movie screen. It takes the magic out of the lights going down and the show is about to start. Oh, and by the way, the couple to the left and the right of me left after the first two pieces. Too bad they missed The Green Table.
Gold Star and Red Velvet provided the best seats ever. No kidding, if you walked into the Theatre and picked the VERY best seat in the house that's where I sat. I HIGHLY recommend it!
The show's running time is two hours and five minutes including two intermissions.
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.
