The Nutcracker Comes to Life at the Tobin Center This Weekend


  • Alexander Devora
Ballet San Antonio brings the perennial holiday favorite The Nutcracker to the Tobin for nine performances with live accompaniment of the Tchaikovsky score provided by the San Antonio Symphony under the direction of Noam Aviel.

Inspired by the classic E.T.A. Hoffmann tale The Nutcracker and the Mouse King, reality and fantasy blend in a young girl’s dreams of a handsome prince, frightening rodents at war and exotic characters from around the globe. This all-new Ballet San Antonio commission breathes fresh life into the Yuletide staple with choreography by Easton and Haley Smith.

$35-$114, 7:30pm Fri Nov. 23, 2pm & 7:30pm Sat Nov. 24, 2pm Sun Nov. 26 (through Dec. 2), Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, (210) 223-8624,
