Think you know
The Nutcracker?

San Jose Dance Theatre: 50 Years of The Nutcracker

The Nutcracker is a beloved story that is performed every year by ballet companies across the country. But is it the same Nutcracker now as it was 50 years ago?

Bring your kids on Saturday, November 15, at 11am to our intimate Carriage House Theatre as San Jose Dance Theatre presents 50 Years of The Nutcracker—excerpts from the production featuring local youth dancers. This unique snapshot of the traditional performance will demonstrate how it has evolved over time. 

Designed to be educational for both parents and kids, the show will provide an opportunity to learn about the artistry, history, and traditions behind The Nutcracker. It's both fascinating and fun to watch! And if you like the performance, you'll want to see the whole production taking place December 4-6 at the Center for Performing Arts in downdown San Jose.
