San Diego Ballet brings America's favorite holiday event to dazzling life in its 26th annual production of The Nutcracker, which features Tchaikovsky's timeless score and a cast of more than 100 beautifully costumed dancers from China, Japan, Russia, South Africa and Mexico, as well as children from the San Diego School of Ballet. Based on E.T.A. Hoffmann's beloved holiday tale, this glittering production follows young Clara, who receives the gift of a nutcracker at a family Christmas party, magically leading to a grand adventure that begins with a handsome prince and an epic battle between mice and toys, and ends with a delightful journey to the Land of Sweets.
Running time is approximately two hours, with one intermission.
This show is appropriate for children of all ages.
