We try to see the Nutcracker show every other year because it's amazing although pricey. It is so worth it though, the costumes and the dancers are all incredible. This year, we sat in the boxes and the seats were great.

The final season of the Robert Joffrey choregraphed Nutcracker. It was breathtakingly beautiful. This Christmas Classic brought me back to the first time I saw it when I was a little girl. The Snow King and Queen were amazing and talented. The entire cast was fabulous!

I love the ballet and have been wanting to go to the Joffrey for years. We were able to see The Nutcracker this weekend and it was superb. What beautiful talent these dancers have. Everything was stunning.

Anyone who loves the Nutcracker should see the final shows of the beautiful Robert Joffrey choreography before it is retired on December 27th. The ballet is two hours including the 20 minute intermission. The atmosphere is warm and festive at the beautiful Auditorium Theatre. This show is appropriate for all but the youngest children (age 5 and up) and you... More

Even if you're not into ballet, I can't imagine anyone that would not be moved by some of the talent they show here. The stage in theater is very elegant and all of the performances are always so well done. Even the pricing is not unreasonable. Well worth it

Joffrey Ballet left NYC and made Chicago their home. They are World class and we are thrilled to have them as our Company. International choreographers and Master teachers make them Great.

My wife and I recently attended the Joffrey Ballet's New Work's Ballet and it was fantastic, and I'm not a big ballet fan. Their staging and performances were very smooth and captivating. The performance was in the Cadillac Palace and that venue provided a great setting for this performance. Thanks to all the dancers and stage hands.
