"This cherished version, originally choreographed by Ruth Page herself, is a piece of Chicago history worth seeing." -The Chicago Tribune
The beloved Chicago holiday family classic is back for another magical year of performances! Originally presented in the Arie Crown Theater from 1965 until 1997, this is the only production that recreates the original version’s full-length staging. The little girl Clara, her mysterious godfather magician, a handsome prince, the battle between toy soldiers and mice, a forest glade of dancing Snowflakes – these iconic scenes are all brought to life in this beautiful and joyful production of Ruth Page’s The Nutcracker. Featuring international guest artists alongside the Ruth Page Civic Ballet Training Company’s elite dancers, experience the exquisite performances, Tchaikovsky's magical score, stunning costumes and imaginative settings in the Land of Snow and the Kingdom of the Sweets! Order your tickets early as performances sell out each year!
