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

Fantastic dancers do beautiful dancing with flowing skirts, cute hat dances, exciting native dance that is a cross of Hawaiian and African, in my opinion, and beautiful costumes. The dancers are graceful and the men lift the ladies up in the air, beautiful. The sad thing is the lighting. It was very dark, so that you could not see the costumes and dancers very well. Once in a while they would really light up the stage, but for the most part it was dark, or dull lighting. Very disappointing on that point. We were in the back of the main floor and hard to see the performers and beautiful costumes. If you don't speak the language you won't know what they are doing or talking about, but the dancing makes up for it. All the dancers give 1000%!

While much of the audience was enthusiastic about this production, we were not. We expected a true folklore dance experience similar to the Ballet Folklorico of Mexico. This was more like a revue done for a second-rate Las Vegas hotel or cruise...continued
The rhythms, costumes and dances of Colombia combine for one sizzling evening in a spectacular display of music, lights and movement. Ballet Folklórico de Antioquia brings the equatorial magic of Colombian dance and tradition to the Symphony Hall stage.
