Ballet in La Mesa

Select Local Merchants

Even when a ballet imposes technical challenges and its reputation raises expectations to near-impossible levels, California Ballet's dancers and artists don't shy away. Much of the company's repertoire reads like a 19th-century Top-10 list—Midsummer Night's Dream, Coppelia, Swan Lake—yet it makes each staging uniquely its own, either by revamping the choreography, casting The Nutcracker with upwards of 200 students from its dance school, or creating sets and costumes that would dazzle an "Ooooh" out of a royal guardsman.

Jump to: Reviews | Ballet Reviews for Manly Men The Nutcracker: “Hell yea! Trust me, bros, the babes are hot and the beers I snuck in were cold. Also, lead dancer Eloise Michelle’s arabesque penchee was astonishing. This show is so ballsy I grew a beard while watching it.”
