The Joffrey Ballet continues to delight and astonish world audiences with its "breathless fluidity" (The Los Angeles Times), whether reviving the masterpieces of the greats or exploring contemporary motifs through the classics of tomorrow. For a week over the Thanksgiving holidays, the company returns to the Kennedy Center to present Robert Joffrey's "dazzling" (The Chicago Sun-Times) family production of The Nutcracker, featuring charming Victorian scenery and costumes, Gerald Arpino's thrilling waltzes for the Snowflakes and Flowers, dozens of dancing and singing children, and the incomparable Joffrey dancers. Whether you're six or sixty, you're sure to cherish this version of Tchaikovsky's enchanting masterpiece, a Kennedy Center tradition.
