    The return of the family-affordable traditional Nutcracker! Salt Creek Ballet’s The Nutcracker marches back onto the North Shore Center stage with an affordable full-length holiday production performed in the grand Russian style by a professional company with incredible guest soloists! For a holiday production that first delighted audiences way back in 1892, Salt Creek Ballet’s The Nutcracker demonstrates how to make this historic ballet and holiday tradition just as accessible and relevant today. The Nutcracker is the perfect way to introduce young children to the power and beauty of classical dance.

    Salt Creek Ballet’s production produces a whimsical tale of young Clara and her magical journey with waltzing flowers, giant mice and sugar plum fairies, which are all exquisitely set to Tchaikovsky’s enchanting musical score. The production features amazing new sets, vibrant costumes and internationally recognized guest dancers. The production additionally boasts a cast of one hundred, including local children and young adults aged eight to seventeen from the school of the Salt Creek Ballet. The Chicago Sun-Times calls the production “…a solid, professional ‘Nutcracker’,” and Laura Molzahn of the Chicago Tribune calls Salt Creek Ballet “A real treat.” Salt Creek Ballet is artistically directed by Erica De La O, and Associate Ballet Director, Kristopher Wojtera.
