The best dance production we haver ever been to. LIVE music with Anna von Hausswolf singing. She puts you in the middle of the dream. Intense corregraphy. Intricate dance moves, and 30+ dancers.
This will be difficult to see only once.
I have been a fan and subscriber to the Joffrey Ballet for the last couple years! Each creation is much more spectacular than the last. I especially love the Chicago version of the Nutcracker that gives local historical twist to the classic Ballet!
We visited Chicago just before Christmas and wanted to take in a show. My wife is a ballet fan and wanted to see the Joffrey Ballet, but they were doing the Nutcracker as most ballet companies do at Christmas, to the point where it is...More
PBS aired a documentary about the Joffrey's commissioning of a re-imagining of the Nutcracker set among the immigrants who actually built the 1893 Chicago World's Fair. We were hooked on seeing it during this holiday season. As it turned out, our daughter bought first balcony,...More
New and mesmerizing performance of the Nutcracker that all Chicagoans should enjoy. I loved the World's Fair theme. Instead of a rich child in Czarist Russia receiving a nutcracker on Xmas Eve and dreaming of more, a poor boy from the south side steals one,...More
After years of always wanting to see the nutcracker we finally decided to go with family this year on Christmas Eve. The show was spectacular and I couldn’t take my eyes off of the performers. The show was well done and seemed to go fairly...More

I attended with a group; I didn't realize until we were in Chicago that it was going to be a modernized version. We had seats on the 2nd floor, which were fine. The Auditorium Theater is a beautiful building with old-theater charm. The Joffrey Ballet...More
First- never sit in the second row balcony at the Auditorium Theatre! Obstructed view for seats more expensive than the floor! We constantly needed to move our heads to see around the heads in front of us. I was so upset! The second half we...More
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of
the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
