Denver’s Favorite Holiday Tradition

57 seasons!  That is how many  years that Colorado Ballet has put on a performance of The Nutcracker and every year it is just as good as the previous year.  We have been long time partners of the ballet and this is one tradition that we do not miss.  Colorado feels the same way because Colorado Ballet has now added on even more performances of this incredible ballet.  It truly is one of Denver’s favorite holiday traditions!

Colorado Ballet Artistic Director Gil Boggs states, “We invite families and friends to make lifelong memories by attending this timeless ballet—showcasing our exceptional dancers performing to Tchaikovsky’s beloved music. We strive to make each performance more magical than the last, and audiences can’t get enough of this classic. With a story that sparks the imagination of audiences young and old, The Nutcracker will whisk you away to distant lands with its whimsical battles, hypnotizing snow flurries and celebratory sets and costumes.

It really is whimsical and magical.  I know my little girl looks forward to it each year and so do I.  The first time I saw The Nutcracker was at Colorado Ballet and I remember walking out of the Ellie Caulkins Opera House with a never ending smile and that feeling that the holiday season was truly upon us.
