Review from the Chronicle.

Classical splendor, original spins in San Jose's clever 'Nutcracker'

Octavio Roca, Chronicle Dance Critic

It is also among the most original. Nahat's "Nutcracker" does start off traditionally with a big party on Christmas Eve, then brings to life a little girl's dream of exotic travels with a Nutcracker Prince and ends with the girl safely back home. Still, there is a lot that is different and very clever in San Jose.

Linh and Onizuka Shine in Ballet San Jose’s ‘Nutcracker’
By Gerrye Wong | Special to AsianWeek

Audiences of Ballet San Jose’s production of The Nutcracker are enthralled with the dancing of principal dancers Le Mai Linh and Rika Onizuka, in the production, which runs through Dec. 23.

In front of sell-out audiences, Linh — who goes by Elton — plays the major role of the Czar, with Onizuka soloing as Maria. Their pairing in the Nutcracker’s “Spanish Chocolate” scene also won them much favor from the local audiences at the San Jose Center for the Performing Arts earlier this year. That show had upwards of 30,000 attendees this year.

Linh was living in Hanoi and entered a theater arts school at the age of seven. He continued at this school through high school. After graduation, he studied at the Vietnam School of Dance and performed with the Hong Kong Ballet.
