The show was great (aside from a few untimed dance sequences) and the sets were phenomenal! I hadn't been to The Nutcracker since I was a child and this performance absolutely reminded me how wonderful it is. Any fan of the ballet would enjoy this performance, I believe.
Make it your holiday tradition! Experience Robert Joffrey’s extraordinary production of The Nutcracker! The Tchaikovsky masterpiece, featuring the full Joffrey company, local children’s choruses, and more than 120 young dancers, creates a winter wonderland of beauty, magic and sugarplum delight!
About the Ticket Supplier: 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.
