The New Joffrey Nutcracker

This year sees The Joffrey Ballet's classic return following a major reinvention by the iconic Christopher Wheeldon in 2016. The previous Joffrey version ran for many years, becoming the Number One Chicago Christmas tradition, and returned annually to the Auditorium Theatre to wow their die-hard fans since 1987.

what is tHE NUTCRACKER about?

The must see tradition has been boldly reimagined for the new generation. When young Marie and her mother host a holiday party, the charing Great Impresario pays a surprise visit and sets off on a Christmas Eve dream full of adventure and romance.

Christoper Wheeldon received a Tony Award for his work on the choreography of the Broadway hit, An American in Paris.
