“2012 Nutcracker was excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

This was my 10 year old daughter's first time to see the Nutcracker and it was fantastic. Our seats were given to us by one of the ballet's supporting patrons so our seats were very high up in the balcony but the Ellie Caulkins theater is really designed spectacularly so even in the higher seats the views were fantastic. The costumes, scenery and the dancers made it a night to remember. We saw the 7:30 p.m. show and for younger kids I would recommend the matinee.

“Pleasantly Pleased”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012 via mobile

After years of complaining about the execution of the Colorado Ballet Company's technique, I can say this years Nutcracker is a pleasure to watch. Rather like visiting with an old friend who has recovered from a serious aliment! The set and costumes are mix of old, newer old and new. Some members of the cast have dance red with Colorado Ballet for several seasons. Under the direction of the current Artist Director the company shines. Sharon Warren as Dew Drop shine the brightest of All the dancers.

“Don't miss any of their performances... this is an incredibly good ballet company.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2012

Children and adults alike will love the Colorado Ballet. Make a point of seeing any of their performances...especially their Christmas-time presentation of The Nutcracker. It will give Christmas a special thrill.
