One of San Diego's finest holiday traditions leaps onto the Civic Theatre stage, with the spectacular Tchaikovsky score performed live by a symphony orchestra. It just isn't the holidays without The Nutcracker, the magical story of Clara, who dreams that her new toy nutcracker soldier has come to life. Together, they experience a fantastical adventure that leads them through an epic battle with the Rat King to the Sugar Plum Fairy's magical Land of Sweets. San Diego's Classics Philharmonics and the San Diego Symphony join California Ballet Company on different dates for a slight twist on the traditional tale: Clara is now an older child who's just beginning to dream of love. Gather your friends and family for the most-attended Nutcracker in San Diego County!
Live music accompaniment:
