Having spent 10 years in Manhattan going to lots of dance, I was a snob about local ballet when I moved back to Denver. Wow, was I wrong. This is a very fine company--very strong dancers, nice programs, good venue and high quality productions with...More

I recently saw the opening performance of the Denver Ballet Nutcracker. Although some parts of the show were very beautiful and well done- breathtaking in beauty at times, many other parts were failures. The artistic director of the ballet has failed in her job, instead...More

One of the best ballet companies in the country. The Ellie Caulkins theater is beautiful. If you're Denver over Christmas they always to a wonderful Nutcracker.

Enchanting performances with talented dancers, a wonderful orchestra, magnificent sets, and a lovely venue. I have enjoyed every performance and found reasonably priced tickets with good views of the stage.

I just saw a wonderful Colorado Ballet performance of Sleeping Beauty. When you visit Denver, try to see a performance! Consistently beautiful dancing, staging and orchestra.

Went to a ballet/symphony fusion show. It was incredible. The music and performance were masterfully done. Only down side was parking, which was quite expensive.

The Colorado Ballet is amazing. Some do not expect a place in the midwest to have such an accomplished and powerful ballet company, but it delivers. The Nutcracker performance is certainly my favorite, and they perform it each year.

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