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
All the beauty, humor, adventure and tragedy of the frightening urgency of youth is danced to the brilliant and emotive score of Sergei Prokofiev, performed live by the Ballet Orchestra. David Guthrie’s elaborate and sumptuous sets and costumes, and Kenneth Keith’s dramatic use of light and shadow recreate the charm and danger of old Verona where star-crossed lovers are broken apart by their feuding families. Dennis Nahat’s theatrically intimate choreography grips the senses and compels us to believe again in love at first sight. This is Ballet on a grand scale with forty-five dancers, full symphony orchestra and three-acts of glorious spectacle featuring lavish masked balls, electrifying sword-fights, and secret rendezvous culminating in one of the most moving tragedies in stage history. Ballet San Jose proves that love needs no words.
