Colorado Ballet will present its 58th annual production of The Nutcracker with 27 performances, November 24 through December 24 at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House, with live music featuring the Colorado Ballet Orchestra.
“Even after 57 seasons, Colorado Ballet’s production of The Nutcracker remains one of Denver’s favorite holiday traditions,” states Colorado Ballet Artistic Director Gil Boggs. “We invite families and friends to make lifelong memories by attending this timeless ballet—showcasing our exceptional dancers performing to Tchaikovsky’s beloved music. We strive to make each performance more magical than the last, and audiences can’t get enough of this classic. With a story that sparks the imagination of audiences young and old, The Nutcracker will whisk you away to distant lands with its whimsical battles, hypnotizing snow flurries and celebratory sets and costumes.”
The popularity of The Nutcracker continues to grow, and this season Colorado Ballet will increase the number of offerings to 27 performances from Thanksgiving weekend to Christmas Eve. Many performances sell out before opening night, so patrons are encouraged to purchase their tickets early to secure the best available seats and avoid disappointment.
