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
