Featuring Original choreography by Ruth Page

Additional choreography by Larry Long, Dolores Long, and Birute Barodicaite

Directed by Victor Alexander

This beloved holiday family classic is the only production that recreates the original version’s full-length staging. Little Clara, her mysterious godfather magician, a handsome prince, the battle between toy soldiers and mice, and a forest glade of dancing Snowflakes are all brought to life in this beautiful and joyful production. Featuring international guest artists alongside the Ruth Page Civic Ballet elite dancers, experience exquisite performances, Tchaikovsky's magical score, stunning costumes, and imaginative settings in the Land of Snow and the Kingdom of the Sweets! In keeping with Ruth Page’s passion for children’s involvement, additional cast members will feature local dance students from the south suburbs.

"This cherished version, originally choreographed by Ruth Page herself, is a piece of Chicago history worth seeing." -The Chicago Tribune
