"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."
