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 fresh new setting: the fairgrounds of Chicago's 1893 World's Columbian Exposition. Produced by WTTW and the Joffrey Ballet, the documentary Making a New American NUTCRACKER goes behind the scenes to reveal the inspiration for this new Nutcracker and introduces audiences to the creative talents who made it happen. The film is produced by Daniel Andries and narrated by Neve Campbell (Mad Men, House of Cards), who was also co-producer, co-writer and star of The Company, Robert Altman's film about the Joffrey Ballet. Making a New American NUTCRACKER premieres on WXXI-TV Tuesday, December 19, 2017 at 9 p.m.
