Colorado Ballet prepares 57th annual 'Nutcracker'

DENVER - The Nutcracker, a Colorado holiday tradition for nearly six decades, is set to open Saturday. 

Colorado Ballet will present 26 performances of The Nutcracker, November 25 through December 24 at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House in the Denver Performing Arts Complex. 

The 2016 production by the Colorado Ballet was named the best-loved Nutcracker in the U.S. in the 10th Annual Goldstar National Nutcracker Award contest.

“Colorado Ballet’s 57th annual production of the captivating holiday classic The Nutcracker is a larger-than-life extravaganza,” said Colorado Ballet Artistic Director Gil Boggs in a press release.  “This timeless ballet features lavish costumes, exuberant dancing, whimsical battles, hypnotizing snow flurries, delicious sets and majestic live music by the Colorado Ballet Orchestra.”

Tickets to Colorado Ballet's 57th Annual production of The Nutcracker are available at ColoradoBallet.org or by calling 303-837-8888 ext. 2 starting at $30.
