Delight in the magic of Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker, as Clara takes an enchanted journey filled with the beloved melodies and dance that have captivated audiences for more than a century. Guest dancers from nationally renowned dance companies join the Rockford Dance Company and the RSO to present this holiday tradition, great for the whole family.

 

Rockford needs to be reminded how fortunate it is to have a world-class orchestra along with a very fine school of ballet. The musicians … give Tchaikovsky’s melodic score the presentation it deserves and inspires the dancers.
