Helping Celebrate the Holidays with the San Jose Nutcracker!
This year, History San José partnered with the New Ballet School on their production of the San Jose Nutcracker. Our Curators assisted in providing historical and cultural information to transport this winter classic to the Valley of Heart’s Delight.
Images from HSJ’s collection were featured in the set design, and costumes for the first act were inspired by period dolls from HSJ’s collection. Our Curators put together a lovely pop-up exhibit in the Hammer Theatre featuring dolls and toys from History San José’s Collection.
