It just isn't the holidays without The Nutcracker, which comes to magical life on the San Diego Civic Theatre stage complete with beautiful fairies, handsome princes and a lovely young lady on her way to the Sugar Candy Kingdom. Audiences of all ages will enjoy the magical story of Clara, who dreams that her new toy nutcracker soldier has come to life. Together, they experience a fantastical adventure that leads them through an epic battle with the Rat King to the Sugar Plum Fairy's magical Land of Sweets. Based on E.T.A. Hoffmann's tale The Nutcracker and the Mouse King, California Ballet Company's production portrays the main character of Clara as an older child who's just beginning to dream of love. Learn More
The parking is kind of far and if you don't know where it is it is hard to understand. Ask around and plan to get there with enough time!La Jolla Symphony & Chorus: Life ... Made for Sharing info • Mar 18 2014 star this tip starred

The performance, as well as the ArtsTalk! post-performance discussion were meaningful, lively experiences.
The dancers and choreography were pulsating, angst-ridden and playful all in one. If one were to blend the familiar, say, look of classical roman architecture with its massive columns, with the curve and fragility of the sway large swatches of fabric as a breeze blows through, you'd have a mixed mood of the evening's presentation. There was almost a sense of hide-and-seek that the choreography, as wonderfully interpreted and presented by the dancers, invited the audience to participate in.
As for the hall's choice of placing seats right at the foot of the stage, I was most disappointed. This should certainly be addressed by Goldstar.
