Making A New American Nutcracker

Making A New American Nutcracker

For generations, The Nutcracker has been a holiday tradition for audiences of all ages. In 2016, Chicago's Joffrey Ballet gave the work an ingenious makeover and a new setting: the fairgrounds of Chicago's 1893 World's Columbian Exposition. Now, WTTW takes you behind the scenes to reveal how it was made and introduce the A-list creative talents who made it happen. They and many of the performers share anecdotes about the process and recall their first experiences either seeing or performing in The Nutcracker. The film is narrated by actress Neve Campbell. TVG
