The Santa Clara Ballet Company, now in its 45th year, spotlights acclaimed professionals alongside company soloists and pre-professional students from the Santa Clara Ballet School as well as other schools and dance companies throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.

The annual production of Benjamin Reyes' full-length, traditional version of the ballet is a holiday favorite with sparkling choreography set to the renowned music of P.I. Tchaikovsky.

This classic production follows the magical journey of young Clara, who receives a nutcracker as a gift at her family's Christmas Eve party. Later that night, her nutcracker magically transforms into a handsome prince, who leads her through an enchanted forest and on to the Nutcracker Prince's Kingdom.
