New Ballet’s San Jose Nutcracker with Ragazzi

The New Ballet’s San Jose Nutcracker takes place in San Jose at the turn of the last century. Presented in partnership with History San Jose, and featuring the voices of Ragazzi Premiere singers, it tells the well-loved story of Clara and the Nutcracker. The ballet has historical references to the heritage that has made Santa Clara Valley the center of innovation it is today. This unique production features landmarks of the era, with dazzling new scenic elements including a growing replica of the historic San Jose Light Tower and a skyline of San Jose inspired by the city in 1905. Costumes for the first act were inspired by period dolls from the History San Jose archives and the second act was inspired by our valley in the last century, carpeted in orchard blossoms and known as “The Valley of Heart’s Delight.” Swirling snowflakes, waltzing flowers, and The Sugarplum Fairy will make this holiday ballet a new favorite for the entire family.

Ragazzi Premiere choristers sing these performances.
