A sumptuous waltz featuring challenging technique and bravura partnering, choreographed in Arpino’s signature exuberant style.

“The Joffrey Ballet has come up with something to write home about—a Christmas-card version of ‘The Nutcracker’ that has a distinct and original flavor of its own.”

—Anna Kisselgoff, New York Times
