The Nutcracker was such an exquisite production that we already bought tickets to watch Fancy Footwork and the Armstrong center. We can't wait!

We have been fans of the symphony and opera for a long time, but just started attending Colorado Ballet performances in the last couple years. I wish we knew what we were missing all those years! What a fantastic experience - high quality dancers and choreography, costumes and sets. Their Nutcracker is just fantastic!

We began going to the Colorado Ballet presents the Nutcracker at the Ellie Caulkin's Opera House 3 years ago, making it our newest family tradition, and we have yet to be disappointed. The Colorado Ballet has such graceful dancers and we are always mesmerized by their performances! If you're in the area around Christmas time, put Colorado Ballet's The Nutcracker... More

My parents use to take me to "cultural events" when I was a little boy. I used to hate that. But now, I'm so glad they taught us to sit quietly, to enjoy some finer things in life, and to spend a bit of money now and again. The wife had never been to a ballet until we saw The... More

The Nutcracker was worth it (not cheap - but the Ellie Caulkins Opera House is a great venue. Well done production - great start to the holiday season

Colorado Ballet is a regional company with national quality dancers. Directed by former ABT dancers, this company has a beautiful style and reperatoire. The company performs four to five times per year at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House. If you are in town while they are in house, don't miss the show! Alternately, the company and academy perform for many... More

World class ballet is presented by this company. SWAN LAKE was excellent as the sold out house would support. I found myself free at the last minute and chanced getting a ticket which I did in center orchestra, row L. The soloists as well as the corps de ballet presented an outstanding performance that mesmerized every attendee and garnered rousing,... More

Actually saw this a few years ago. A litttle slow with my reviews. If you get a chance this is a must see. The performance was enthralling. I'd see it again - once was not enough. The music, dancing and stage set are great.

We enjoyed a flawless night of ballet at the Ellie Caulkins Opera house! Truly a memorable night watching Swan Lake which was performed beautifully by the Colorado Ballet. Truly one of the best performances I have watched in Colorado! There is only one performance left and that's today, but keep it in mind for the future. Denver has the best... More

As a frequent visitor to the Colorado Ballet I always look forward to my next trip. We saw a weekend matinee of Swan Lake and it was fantastic. Sharon Wehner is simply perfect in the role of Odette/Odile. The costumes were gorgeous and the music beautifully performed. Excellent job Colorado Ballet!
