California Ballet Company’s glittering production of The Nutcracker at the Civic Theatre is the most highly attended Nutcracker in San Diego County. Choreographed by Maxine Mahon with music director John Stubbs conducting Classics Philharmonic Orchestra Dec 12 & 13 and the San Diego Symphony December 16-20, The Nutcracker is the perfect way to celebrate the holiday season with family and friends.
Based on E.T.A.Hoffman’s tale of The Nutcracker and the Mouse King, California Ballet Company’s sparkling production portrays the main character of Clara as an older child beginning to dream of love. After a family Christmas party where she receives the gift of a Nutcracker, she embarks on a dream adventure that begins with an epic battle of mice and toys and ends with a journey to the kingdom of sweets.
