The Joffrey Ballet presents The Nutcracker 12.10 – 12.30


The Joffrey Ballet’s New Nutcracker

A classic Christmas favorite, The Nutcracker is certainly one of ballet’s most well-known stories.  The journey of young Clara and the Nutcracker Prince through a magical world of Mouse Kings and Sugar Plum Fairies has enchanted audiences for more than a century.  This year, the ballet takes on a new twist.  Choreographer Christopher Wheeldon reinvents this timeless tale for The Joffrey Ballet, bringing it to Chicago’s 1893 World’s Fair.  Lovers of the original ballet shouldn’t worry–recognizable characters and the original score will ensure that the show still feels familiar.  For those new to the ballet world, this year may be a chance to see dance and Chicago in a new light.  The Joffrey’s new Nutcracker is a celebration not only of the holidays, but of our city as well.
