A beautiful new Joffrey "Nutcracker" set in 1892 Chicago during the Worlds Fair. I am so glad that I made time to see the world premiere of this new production - what a wonderful experience... I have always loved the Nutcracker - who doesn't? but...continued

Beautifully orchestrated with a creative twist using the Chicago World Fair as the theme to the Nutcracker.

Some very good moments in the production (Arabian dancers, Queen of the Fair) but I still yearned for the old story versus this new one of the World's Fair in Chicago. The cowboy and saloon girls just didn't feel right!

I never considered myself a ballet fan, but absolutely loved this production. Everybody should see this ballet at least once in their lifetime. Between the orchestra, dancing, the scenic backdrop .... just a spectacular holiday event.

Balcony seats were uncomfortable. The performance was unique but a bit ragged

This was the best version of the Nutcracker we have ever seen. The sets were breathtaking. The storyline was clever. Kudos to Christopher Wheeldon and the Joffrey Ballet!

I am a professional musician. I played in the orchestra for the annual Ruth Page Nutcracker for over 20 years - and we used a FULL orchestra - so that ALL the parts Tchaikovsky wrote were played. The orchestra for the Joffrey version is "cut...continued

What a terrific show! So imaginative; my favorite part was the tree that grows to fill the entire stage. Beautiful use of lighting!

My husband and I loved this ballet, particularly the story reimagined as in the Chicago Worlds Fair.
There were two segments where we enjoyed the music, which understandably were lengthy, however we felt something more could have happened within...continued
