A theatrical event of irresistible power

Washington Post

The world-famous Joffrey Ballet returns to the Auditorium Theatre for its annual performance of The Nutcracker. During the performance the entire Company is joined onstage by 118 young dancers from Chicago and beyond as well as vocalists from five local children's choirs, who will also perform for guests half an hour before the curtain and during intermission at all performances.

It's time to revel in the awe-inspiring Nutcracker that has captivated Chicago for 25 years with brilliant costumes, larger than life scenery, entrancing storytelling and of course, Tchaikovsky's famous score.
