Tevye tries to maintain his family and Jewish religious traditions while outside influences encroach upon their lives. The strong-willed actions of his three older daughters — Tzeitel (Lena Timrott), Hodel (Alicia Nicole Andreatta-Jacques) and Chava (Elizabeth Martinie) — who choose their own husbands moves the family further away from the customs of his faith. Choosing “love” over “tradition” makes Tevye wonder if his wife Golde (Bobbie Barlow) loves him. Throughout all of this, Tevye must also deal with the edict of the czar that evicts the Jews from their dear little village of “Anatevka.”.

Of all the routines, I had three favorites, but it was really hard to choose. One was the emotional contemporary number with Zack and Val where she was supposed to be blind and her lover was keeping her safe. Valerie was so great with her expressions that ranged from confusion to delight, and both dancers totally sold the idea of the routine. Jesse said they completely sold it and it was “so beautiful,” while Nigel loved the choreography, especially that which touched on difficult subjects.

In Jacobs-Yu and Moreno, Ballet San Jose has two excellently matched protagonists. A beautiful wide-eyed dancer with a sparkling demeanor, Jacobs-Yu’s Maria is as shy as she is curious about what’s happening to her. But that pliable softness resides on top of a steely technique. She opens arabesques with the ease of an unfolding fan and sails through traveling leaps apparently unhampered by gravity. Moreno, still the company’s strongest technician, sometimes has a tendency to be overly self-involved. Not in “Nutcracker.” Partnering Jacobs-Yu, he is solicitous and protective without abandoning his vaunted ability to take to the air. In the Russian variation, however, the series of splits in the air — spectacular as they were — almost did him in.
