The Joffrey Ballet’s holiday gift to Chicago is a Nutcracker that the city can call its own, one that tells the story of Chicagoans and the magic of family and highlights one of Chicago’s greatest moments of achievement—the famous World’s Fair of 1893—culminating the Fair’s 125th anniversary year.   The Chicago Philharmonic provides live accompaniment of the classic score by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky for every performance. The full Joffrey Company is also joined onstage by over 88 young dancers from the Chicagoland area and young vocalists from local choirs.
