California Ballet’s ‘The Nutcracker’ 2016

December 11, 2016

California Ballet Company’s “The Nutcracker” leaps onto the Civic Theatre Stage with the Classics Philharmonics and the San Diego Symphony.

Based on E.T.A. Hoffman’s tale of “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King,” California Ballet Company’s production follows Clara beginning to dream of love. After a family Christmas party where she receives the gift of a nutcracker, she embarks on a dream adventure that begins with an epic battle of mice and toys, and ends with a journey to the kingdom of sweets.

The holiday classic brings the spectacular Tchaikovsky score to life with a cast of professional ballerinas, student dancers and live symphony orchestra accompaniment at every performance.
