Nov. 28-Dec. 1: The Nutcracker
Chicago's Joffrey Ballet is at The Kennedy Center through Sunday, performing The Nutcracker. Victorian-era costumes and a dreamlike set transform the stage into a magical world in which a young girl joins hands with a magician and travels from her parlor room to faraway lands filled with snow, sweets and a host of colorful characters. The Kennedy Center Opera House Orchestra will be providing musical accompaniment from down in the pit.
