Experience all the wonder and beauty of Moscow Ballet's famed Great Russian Nutcracker, a dazzling holiday tradition that features gorgeous Swarovski crystal-laden costumes, life-sized matrushka dolls, 10-foot-tall silk puppets and a show-stopping "Dove of Peace" formation in which two dancers become one bird with a 20-foot wingspan. Interwoven into this year's production is a peek inside Masha's magical toy cabinet plus a charming display of authentic Russian Christmas puppetry. This is your chance to see the award-winning principal dancers and corps de ballet perform Olympic-worthy leaps, lifts and pirouettes as they tell the heartwarming tale of Masha meeting her prince.

Ballet San Jose presents The Toreador, a ballet in two acts by the legendary August Bournonville with new and re-adapted choreography by Flemming Flindt. Ballet San Jose is the only ballet company in the world which has this ballet in its repertory and will present it with full orchestra. All the costumes and scenery were constructed by Denmark’s Royal Opera House. The story revolves around the beautiful daughter of a Spanish innkeeper and her love for a brave and handsome toreador, whom she cannot bear to see in danger.
