I saw the Denver Ballot’s Nutcracker last night with my family and we were not disappointed! Absolutely recommend this show for anyone who loves the traditional and nostalgic story of the Nutcracker. I sat there in amazement, I have gone to this production every year for at least a decade. I was a ballerina for my entire childhood and I was extremely impressed! My inner child came out as I sat there with wide eyes, taking in the whole experience! Every dance and song were on point, nothing was left out or done poorly. The cast is extremely talented, true athletes to say the least! We will absolutely be back next year to see my favorite ballet! Thank you Denver Ballet!

Gregory Gonzalez was an amazing Herr Drosselmeyer! Seats were closer (because of Orchestra Pit?) than they appeared on the venue seating chart. Production felt a bit rushed compared to other Nutcrackers - perhaps so they could keep it a 2 hours total. Children in the production were uniformly excellent. Main dancers were somewhat mixed. All of the Kingdom of Sweets dances were great except the Arabian duo was miscast and underwhelming. The soloist who danced Clara in the cast I saw was strong technically and very charming. Staging of some of the main dances Flowers and Snowflakes was average. Easy parking. Festive and fun for all ages.
