California Nutcracker Ballets

California Nutcracker Ballet productions number well over 50 with most companies producing a minimum of two shows.  You can easily go nuts for this classic holiday ballet based on the novel by German author Ernst Theodor Amadeus (E.T.A.) Hoffmann, Nutcracker and Mouseking. Here's the Nutcracker Story summary.

swordBallet San Jose (pictured above) offers one of the most lavish productions of THE NUTCRACKER. It requires four fog machines and a total of 400 pounds of dry ice per performance for the  Wondrous Snowstorm  at the end of Act I. Sixty pounds of flameproof, punched white confetti is dropped during the scene.  In addition, each year California is graced with The Great Russian Nutcracker during its international tour. Tapping into the talent of ballet dancers who transition from stage &  spotlights to behind the scenes— teaching, creating new choreography and running  ballet schools, many of The Nutcracker ballets in California are world-class!
