Ballet Chicago's "The Nutcracker" -- Online

Zoom Stream

Ballet Chicago is returning to the Athenaeum Theatre, virtually, with two “Nutcracker” events! This year you can share this incredible experience with friends and family around the world! The first features fully intact historic archival performances to be streamed through Zoom. The second will include dancers from its current roster, with twelve restaged and socially distanced dances to be safely filmed at the Athenaeum Theatre. These dances will then be inserted into existing historic footage to create Ballet Chicago’s 2020 “Nutcracker”, also streamed to viewers through Zoom. Ballet Chicago’s “Nutcracker”, one of the city’s favorite holiday events, is performed by more than 120 Ballet Chicago students, ranging in age from three to adult! The production features dazzling sets and costumes to match the charming and inventive choreography of Artistic Director Daniel Duell, Associate Artistic Director Patricia Blair and Ballet Chicago Resident Choreographer Ted Seymour. A highlight of the production is George Balanchine’s stunning Act Two “Sugar Plum Pas de Deux”, one of the pinnacle dance pieces in American ballet repertoire.
