I took my niece, sister, and folks to the Nutcracker and it was absolutely magical! The whole family loved it, from 8 years old to 68 years old! I would definitely go again and recommend it to anyone who wants to get into the holiday spirit and...continued

I took my daughter to The Nutcracker performance and although she is now 40, she remembers fondly what it was like to attend the performance as a young child. We both loved the beautiful ballet, the moving music, the gorgeous costumes and the...continued

I was very disappointed in the overall quality of the production. It was not up to the standards that I was accustomed to in the past, "80's & '90''s.
I took my 16 yr. old Granddaughter, her friend and my Daughter (a past student & performer,...continued

The total experience of going to San Francisco and to the Opera House was lots of fun. The orchestra was superb, and the first act was great. But I thought that the scenery for the 2nd act was very sparse for such a cherished ballet. The dream...continued

This is the 5th year we go as a family to see the SF Ballet Nutcracker performance. It has become a tradition that continues to enchant and amaze us all. Our kids (10 and 8) look forward to it every year - we get dressed up and have a nice dinner...continued

What a gorgeous Nutcracker production! We absolutely loved everything about it except that Claire had no personality and should have danced on pointe.
A note to theatre goers: Please don't bring your tiny tots, children under 5 should not be...continued

Great show. This was my first time watching the Nutcracker live. Was a really special event for me. I definitely recommend this show for the price. Be warned, it's dark and not a word is spoken so keep that in mind.

Hands down, the SF Ballet puts on the best and most beautiful production of The Nutcracker at the War Memorial Opera House. This was a treat for me as a child and now I am sharing the experience with my own children!

Have attended every year since I was 5. That is over 35 years of performances and it never gets boring!

Helgi Tomasson has over the years turned the SF Ballet from a 3rd class to a world class company. This production was excellent. I was entranced by the magic such as the ballerina emerging from three gift boxes! The choreography was aggressive...continued

I brought my 3 and 5 year old and they both thought it was fantastic. There were plenty of other kids in the audience (all of whom were very well behaved), but having that many kids gave you a sense of relief if anyone were to misbehave. It is a...continued
