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

It was an enjoyable experience for my girls and I. The women performers/dancers were much better than their male counterparts. This was disappointing to see...not that I was expecting Barishnikov, but some of these male dancers weren't very good.
Inspired by child’s dream, Nutcracker, by Director Emeritis Carlos Carvajal, is a family friendly ballet by artistic directors, Michael Lowe and Mario Alonzo. Enjoy the live orchestra and the heart-warming feel of this professional dance performance. Stay through the exquisite finale and meet the dancers on stage. You’ll applaud every breathtaking movement as you enjoy the magic.
