Bellydance Evolution takes the much-loved story of Alice in Wonderland to the next level in this reimagined dance version that incorporates world fusion and hip-hop dance. The colorful, crazy characters of Wonderland come to life in a whole new way, giving a fresh burst of soul and energy to the almost 50-year-old tale of a young girl who falls down a rabbit hole and finds herself on the adventure of a lifetime: chasing a talking rabbit, taking tea with a Mad Hatter and facing up to the fearsome Queen of Hearts.

It was very good. Tons of talent. A different version than I'm used to with a strange ending. The dancers, orchestra and the scenery was worth going to see. As well as the beautiful Spreckels Theater. We had terrific seats. Thanks again Goldstar!

- This production of <em>The Nutcracker</em> was a Goldstar "Roar of the Crowd" winner in 2009.
Voted “San Diego’s Best Nutcracker” (Tommy Dance Award), and described by the San Diego Union-Tribune as “a plum of a Nutcracker,” City Ballet’s 16th annual Nutcracker returns to the beautifully refurbished Spreckels Theatre in downtown San Diego for eight performances.
Directors Steven and Elizabeth Wistrich, formerly of the Boston Ballet and Stuttgart Ballet, have created a lavish production with their company of professional dancers. Fashioned after the choreography of the great Russian master, Lev Ivanov, who created the very first Nutcracker more than 100 years ago, the production is dazzling, with virtuoso dancing complemented by opulent sets and costumes. Children’s roles are performed by talented young dancers from the City Ballet School, the official school of City Ballet.
