Back by popular demand, the season opens in October 2013 with Dracula. The unique combination of seductive drama intertwined with movement will mesmerize audience members. Choreographed by Charles Bennett and based upon the classic Bram Stoker haunting tale of vampires and romance, this season’s production will hold surprises even for those who attended last year! This production is not appropriate for children under the age of 8.

In December 2013, Maxine Mahon’s The Nutcracker returns to the stage for an extended two-week run. Filled with amazing dancing, magical music, and the whimsy of childhood, this holiday classic is an instant family tradition. San Diego’s longest-running Nutcracker will be presented with full symphony accompaniment of Tchaikovsky’s magnificent score, conducted by California Ballet Music Director John Stubbs (The Classics Philharmonics December 15 & 15; The San Diego Symphony December 18-22).

May 17-18, 2014

Considered by many to be Tchaikovsky’s crowning jewel, Maxine Mahon’s Sleeping Beauty returns to the Civic Theatre in May of 2014 for the first time in nearly a decade! The ballet is considered to be one of the most difficult to stage and execute in the ballet repertoire. California Ballet is the only local professional company to present this classic gem in its extravagant entirety. Children of all ages will be entertained by this fairy tale classic, filled with special appearances by Little Red Riding Hood and her wolf, Puss ‘n Boots, and Princess Florina and her bluebird!
