A Bay Area tradition for more than 40 years, Peninsula Ballet's sumptuous production of The Nutcracker returns to Redwood City's historic Fox Theatre with its signature sleighful of holiday magic. Known for Carlos Carvajal's beautiful choreography, this spectacular version of the Yuletide favorite features Tchaikovsky's unforgettable score and enchanting special effects, as it tells the story of a young girl who receives a nutcracker soldier as a gift and has a magical dream that her toy comes to life. Together they experience a grand adventure that takes them through an epic battle with the Rat King, through the beautiful Snow Forest to the Sugar Plum Fairy's magical Land of Sweets.
The show runs 2 hours, including intermission.
