Bay Pointe Ballet presents performances of Nutcracker annually at the San Mateo Performing Arts Center, with additional regional
touring dates. With custom-designed sets and costumes as well as Tchaikovsky's enchanting score, choreographer Bruce Steivel sets the stage of this treasured classic in St.
Petersburg, Russia, where ambassadors and their families gather to celebrate the holidays. As the magic unfolds, you'll journey through the Snow Forest to the Land of the Sweets to
celebrate Clara's victory over the dreaded Rat King — a treat for the entire family.
Bruce Steivel's choreography offers a pleasantly traditional take on Tchaikovsky's
fairy-tale ballet, with an emphasis on pretty. - Las Vegas Sun
