The Nutcracker

The Ellie Caulkins Opera House in Denver will be filled with the sounds of Tchaikovsky’s iconic score as Colorado Ballet gets ready for a 28-performance run of The Nutcracker beginning in just a couple of weeks.

The 63rd production of the holiday classic will be accompanied by the Colorado Ballet Orchestra, and audiences will have the privilege of seeing five different casts perform.

Colorado Ballet is thrilled to share another spectacular production of The Nutcracker with individuals in our community.`It is truly a privilege to perform this beautiful ballet for our audiences each season, and I am grateful to our patrons who continue to make The Nutcracker a part of their annual holiday traditions,” stated Artistic Director Gil Boggs.

“This year, I am pleased to announce that Colorado Ballet will present a matinee performance of The Nutcracker with sensory friendly adaptations Sunday, November 26. We’re committed to making The Nutcracker a welcoming, inclusive, and memorable experience for all. I look forward to continuing to share this beloved holiday classic, and our art form, with even more of our community.”
