• The Nutcracker Ballet at Macky Auditorium

    Thank you for a wonderful 2013 production of Boulder's Nutcracker! Mark your calendar now for Nov. 28-30, 2014 at Macky Auditorium, when we unveil some exciting new changes!

    Every year on Thanksgiving weekend, join us as America’s favorite ballet is brought to life by the Boulder Ballet and the Boulder Philharmonic. The grandness of Macky Auditorium is matched by the scale of this production featuring a cast of 80 dancers, live orchestra, full scenery, beautiful costumes and special effects. Running time is approx. 2 hours, including one intermission.

    Classical choreography is infused with theatrical magic, circus arts and a rare sense of humor. The company dancers are joined by students of the Boulder Ballet School, who provide a delightful attraction for young audience members.

    You won’t want to miss the adorable mice, toy soldiers, dreamy snow scene and wondrous trip to the Land of Sweets for Clara and her Nutcracker Prince.
