The San Francisco Ballet Group was remarkably the first American Ballet group to perform a full length show of the Nutcracker Ballet show in the 1940’s. Today, the Nutcracker showcases genuine talents with their ballerina shoes on as the annual live Nutcracker Ballet show performs in some of the largest opera houses in the United States as well as other continents around the world.

Based on the book written by E.T.A. Hoffman, the Nutcracker show was made possible by two prominent dancers during their time, Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov. Upon commissioning Tchaikovsky’s talent for creating classical masterpieces; the Nutcracker was born. Since its debut performance at the Marinsky Theater of Russia, the show has been widely recognized from Eastern Europe across to Western America.

With a collaboration adept choreography and world class orchestra, the Nutcracker show never fails to deliver the magnificent act of theatrical and dance drama. Let them bring that imagination into reality and take you away to the whimsical place of wonderland.

Families and individuals are encouraged to witness the yearly performance that starts from November up through the Holiday season. The Live Nutcracker show caters all ages, especially to parents with young children. Please check below for available tickets for Colorado Ballet performances.
