For generations, The Nutcracker has been a holiday dance 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. Narrator Neve Campbell takes audiences behind the scenes with the dancers and creative visionaries as they bring this strikingly original production to life and transform this European import into a magical and very American story.

Watch it tonight at 8pm on WGBH 2.
