The Nutcracker at Joffrey Ballet
Chicago’s take on the Nutcracker is sure to deliver beautiful music and mesmerizing dancing. Straying from the original story, Christopher Wheeldon’s version showcases Marie and the Nutcracker prince on Christmas Eve at the 1893 World Fair which was held in Chicago.
