Art on theMart: The Joffrey Ballet's "The Nutcracker"


A larger-than-life experience of the Joffrey’s magical holiday tradition.

The Nutcracker presentation for Art on theMART, set to the music of Tchaikovsky’s beloved score. The performance runs nightly at 7:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., in partnership with Chicago’s Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events.

The projections — displayed on theMART’s 2.5 acre river-facade — can be viewed for free from the jetty section of the Chicago Riverwalk on Wacker Drive between Wells Street and Franklin Street. The “opening night” projection is also available to watch online from home.
