The Joffrey Ballet | The Nutcracker
Featuring choreography by Christopher Wheeldon, an updated story by Brian Selznick and a design team consisting of puppeteer Basil Twist and scenic designer Julian Crouch, this Nutcracker is set in Chicago during the 1893 World’s Fair. Tchaikovsky's beloved score will be performed live by Orchestra Iowa, and local children will once again take the stage with the Joffrey dancers as we usher in a new holiday tradition.
