The Original San Jose Nutcracker will capture your imagination and transport you to a magical world of brave toy soldiers & dancing snowflakes.


For over 58 years, San Jose Dance Theatre has created countless family memories and holiday traditions with their magical production of The Nutcracker! Step into the enchanting world of elegant sugarplums, waltzing flowers, a thrilling battle between brave soldiers and menacing mice, and debuting a new extra-large Christmas tree that grows to over 60 feet!

This year, San Jose Dance Theatre audiences will be awed by the grace and talent of our professional company dancing beside our youth ensemble, accompanied again by live orchestra. Musical direction by Scott Krijnen conducting Cambrian Symphony. This 57th production offers an unforgettable experience of your favorite annual holiday classic, The Nutcracker.

San José Dance Theatre is thrilled to return this live production of The Nutcracker on stage at the magnificent San Jose Center for the Performing Arts in Downtown San Jose, December 8-10.
