The Colorado Ballet is amazing. Some do not expect a place in the midwest to have such an accomplished and powerful ballet company, but it delivers. The Nutcracker performance is certainly my favorite, and they perform it each year.

The Nutcracker was such an exquisite production that we already bought tickets to watch Fancy Footwork and the Armstrong center. We can't wait!

Actually saw this a few years ago. A litttle slow with my reviews. If you get a chance this is a must see. The performance was enthralling. I'd see it again - once was not enough. The music, dancing and stage set are great.
