Absolutely magical production! Loved the localized story and the talented multi-racial cast. My 8 year old son was enthralled--even though he tried to be 'cool' about it. Loved the concessions, which thrills all ages. Noteworthy was the Children's...continued

It was a true joy to take my mother to see the Nutcracker at the Opera House. Seeing all the children in their little red coats and listening to the applause after each song was a treat. The performance and music was top notch.

Probably the best Nutcracker performance we've ever attended! Costumes, set, and orchestra were outstanding, also.

A very traditional, magical San Francisco Christmas event. Everyone should see it at least once in their life or every year if you can.

Being in San Francisco during the Holiday season is wonderful. Being able to enjoy the Nutcracker performance in the Warfield Memorial Theater, where it first premiered in the US in 1944 is in and of itself a gift.
The San Francisco Symphony and...continued

Four of us went together - two had seen it many times before (at least 30, and we did NOT like it. Two had never seen it, and thought it was fantastic. We all agreed the dancers were absolutely wonderful, and beautiful to watch. However, they...continued

Great sets, costumes, and lively choreography. Sometimes the group dancing was a little out of sync, but the leads were all outstanding and the atmosphere more than made up for any issues with their timing.

Great stage, great orchestra, very fluid moves. However, the coordination amongst the dancers lacked throughout the bale. Characters were not as differentiated to tell the story.
