Colorado Ballet presents 54th annual production of The Nutcracker
Monday, November 03, 2014
Colorado Ballet will light up the stage with "The Nutcracker," November 29 through December 27, 2014 at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House.  This holiday tradition features classic choreography after Marius Petipa paired with Tchaikovsky's score performed live by the Colorado Ballet Orchestra.

This marks the 54th year that Colorado Ballet’s "The Nutcracker" has been a part of Colorado’s holiday celebration.  The Nutcracker features memorable characters including Clara, the Nutcracker Prince and the Sugarplum Fairy as well as dazzling costumes, onstage blizzards and larger-than-life sets.

“'The Nutcracker' is the best way to kick off the holiday season and it is a must-see for children and adults,” said Colorado Ballet Artistic Director Gil Boggs.  “This enchanting adventure will transport audiences to a magical world of awe and wonder. It doesn’t matter how many times I have seen The Nutcracker, every performance is still magic.  That is why nearly 50,000 people see our production each year.”

In addition to Colorado Ballet’s professional Company and Studio Company on stage, more than 60 students from the Colorado Ballet Academy will perform as polichinelles, party children, soldiers, angels and sugarplum attendants.

“Year after year, Colorado Ballet’s presentation of "The Nutcracker" continues to be one of Colorado’s most popular holiday traditions,” said Boggs.  “We encourage people to purchase their tickets early because last season, we sold out 19 of the 25 performances and the year before, we sold out 18 of the 24 performances.  It is still as popular as ever!”
