AARP Illinois is thrilled to collaborate with The Joffrey Ballet this holiday season! Check your email for a special offer to see their magical production of The Nutcracker.

The Nutcracker runs from November 30 through December 29, 2019


Christopher Wheeldon's acclaimed turn-of-the-century tale opens on Christmas Eve, 1892, mere months before the grand opening of the 1893 World's Fair, as young Marie and her mother prepare for a Christmas Eve potluck celebration. The magic of the season takes hold when a visit from The Great Impresario sets off a whirlwind journey of romance and adventure through a dreamlike World's Fair.

A must-see tradition boldly reimagined for a new generation.
