My Very First Nutcracker 2019

Event Navigation

My Very First Nutcracker is a special one-hour classical ballet presentation of The San Jose Nutcracker suitable for our youngest audiences, including children and toddlers of all ages.

My Very First Nutcracker features the first act of The San Jose Nutcracker, including a festive holiday party hosted by young Clara, her brother Fritz, and their family in San Jose at the turn of the last century. Meet fascinating Uncle Nikola and his electric gifts, including electric lighting for the home, an arc lamp, and a large electric coil that rivals the power of lightning itself. Marvel at a replica of the historic San Jose Light Tower which magically grows to rise above the streets of San Jose. Cheer on adorable mice and toy soldiers who compete to win a magic crown. Be enchanted by a winter wonderland presided over by the Queen of Snow. Introduce your family to the magic of classical ballet!

Featuring The New Ballet Studio Company and students from The New Ballet School, The San Jose Nutcracker will feature a recording of the traditional score by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky.
