The Nutcracker

Overview

The Nutcracker

December 1-30, 2018

Choreographer:  © Christopher Wheeldon

Music: Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky


Journey to Chicago's 1893 World's Fair with Wheeldon's holiday masterpiece. Magic is on the horizon for young Marie and her mother, a sculptress creating the iconic Statue of the Republic. As they prepare for their annual holiday celebration, a visit from the charming but mysterious Great Impresario sets off a Christmas Eve dream of whirlwind romance and adventure. Wheeldon's Nutcracker is a must-see tradition boldly reimagined for a new generation.
