Let me preface this review by saying, I grew up practicing ballet, got a degree in dance, and have been to many see ballets companies perform (Houston Ballet, Trey McIntyre Project, Dance Theatre of Harlem, Kirov Ballet, etc). I went to see The Nutcracker just after Christmas (Dec. 2014), which is not my favorite ballet but it is a winter... More

Great instructor that formerly worked for Chicago Park District. She is awesome, so I'm sure the others must be on the same level. If you are into dance and fitness, and would like your children to share your passion, check them out.

I've seen five performances from the Joffrey over the last few years. Chicago is lucky to have such a fantastic group performing in our city. This is some of the finest ballet in the country. The Auditorium Theatre where they make their home is also more than enough reason to go to a performance. It showcases a century old building... More

It seems like a tradition with my spouse to try and see a Christmas Carol or Nutcracker when we go somewhere for Christmas. We were lucky to find options for both in Chicago, and we opted for Nutcracker. The production was much better than other productions we have seen in Atlanta and other places. The Joffrey obviously has much better... More

The Joffrey Ballet has been a family traditions for generations in our family; be sure to get your tickets far enough in advance, If you end up needing a ticket at the last minute, ask the doormen at the Park Hyatt Hotel; they always know how to get a hold of anything that you may need.

Seeing the Nutcracker was one of the main reasons for my trip to Chicago. The performance was outstanding. The physicality of the art always astounds. Well worth the ticket price. And I sat with nice people which is always good for a solo traveler!

We loved this delightful production in the grand dame setting of the Auditorium Theatre. Great stuff!

Enjoyed the beautifully quaint, old but well kept theater. Seats were not top priced, but had a great view and looked like almost every seat in the house would be very acceptable. The ballet was beautiful as expected. The live orchestra music amazingly well done. Highly recommend and worth the price of a ticket especially if you like the ballet,... More

This was my first time seeing Joffery's rendition. I was impressed with the dancer's skill and poise. Many times I caught myself thinking they were actually slowing down the music, but it wasn't so. The dance was just so smooth and graceful it created a grand allusion that was very enjoyable.

We just took our two boys (ages 7 and 5) to see the Nutcracker at the Auditorium Theater. The theater is gorgeous. We bought tickets in row W and it gave us a perfect view. The theater even had cushions for the kids to use to sit up higher. The music and dancing were awesome. The show held the kids'... More
