“The Nutcracker is the Joffrey’s largest annual production and a cultural staple of Chicago’s holiday season.”
(PRESS RELEASE) C.D. Peacock, Chicago’s oldest jeweler, announces its status as the newest corporate sponsor of The Joffrey Ballet’s presentation of The Nutcracker – currently running at Lyric Opera House, now through December 26.
Christopher Wheeldon’s reimagined classic follows young Marie and the Nutcracker Prince on a Christmas Eve journey through the 1893 World’s Fair with a dazzling spectacle of sights, sounds, and enchantment. This annual holiday tradition celebrates the magic of the season and the rich cultural heritage of Chicago.
C.D. Peacock’s generous contribution not only brings the joy of The Nutcracker back to the stage for thousands this holiday season, but it also supports The Joffrey Ballet’s mission of artistic excellence and world-class dance education.
“C.D. Peacock is committed to supporting Chicago’s performing arts. By partnering with The Joffrey Ballet, not only is C.D. Peacock fostering local performances beginning with The Nutcracker, but also the larger community by contributing to youth arts education and dance programs,” says Qi Holtzman of C.D. Peacock.
“The Nutcracker is the Joffrey’s largest annual production and a cultural staple of Chicago’s holiday season,” says Greg Cameron, President and CEO of the Joffrey. “Bringing this magical performance to life requires a great deal of financial support, and we are so pleased and grateful that C.D. Peacock has joined the ranks of our corporate sponsors that are helping the Joffrey continue a proud tradition for audiences here in Chicago.”
