Costumes designed by Oscar and Tony Award-winning Broadway legend Theoni V. Aldredge and the graceful leaps and pirouettes of close to 100 talented dancers highlight Ballet San Jose's visually-stunning version of Tchaikovsky's holiday classic. Since its premiere in 2012, this full-length production has charmed and impressed Bay Area audiences and critics alike, providing an exciting new annual tradition for Nutcracker fans and families. In fact, CriticalDance.com calls choreographer Karen Gabay's take on E.T.A. Hoffmann's timeless story "a thoughtful and fresh interpretation ... complete with elegant dancing and striking originality." Learn More
— A Company Premiere
Dennis Nahat’s Cannonade is pure rapid-fire energy, as fast as the mortarfire that inspired its title. This classical ballet is danced to Johann Sebastian Bach’s Piano Concerto No. 1 in D minor.
Choreographer Michael Smuin’s Shinju is a Japanese Romeo and Juliet style tragedy danced to a custom-composed score by renowned Japanese-American composer Paul Chihara with brilliantly creative costumes by Willa Kim…the Dream Team that brought you The Tempest
Note: Shinju contains partial nudity.
Nahat’s signature piece, Quicksilver, is choreographed to Felix Mendelssohn’s Piano Concerto No. 1 in G minor, Opus 25. This youthful, joyous work with its driving force delivers a powerhouse of a finale.
