It's been called "a cultural phenomenon" (Variety) and has racked up more than 50 major awards, including a Grammy and three Tonys. Now's your chance to see Broadway's Wicked -- the untold story of the witches of Oz -- right here in San Jose. Long before Dorothy drops into Munchkinland, two girls meet in the land of Oz. One -- born with emerald-green skin -- is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. The story of how these two unlikely friends become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good makes for what Entertainment Weekly calls "the best musical of the decade." Learn More

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.
