This is the new "Nutcracker" experience for me, and spectacular in itself. It was like seeing a whole new performance. The choreography was wonderful. I loved it. But, am still nostalgic for some of the old expected scenes and feelings. The...continued

First time watching the SF Ballet Nutcracker and the experience was fantastic! Seating was great too! If going during the (week) day, get there early due to traffic and parking.

The Nutcracker was a magical evening! The performance was beautiful - especially the snow that fell on stage. I was entranced by the event and the evening passed by too quickly.

Wonderful production! Absolutely wonderful seats in the Premium Dress Circle. My only gripe was the two women who clearly had never been to a professional ballet before and brought children that were way too young. It made it hard for my...continued

We appreciate great ballet and have season subscriptions, but this combines great theatre, music and dancing. Fun and festive atmosphere in the opera house, for the whole family not just ballet lovers.

I hadn't seen the Nutcracker in years and loved it. The ballet never loses it's magic. This production was lovely and the solo dancers excellent. Looking at all the little girls dressed in their party dresses was a treat.

Music, dance and costumes just as lovely as ever, although I found the scenery much more spare than in previous years. This is such a beautiful venue. Suggest you arrive early to avoid long box office lines. You can enter up to one hour ahead....continued

Great new show. I haven't been in over ten years so I'm sure the production has been around a bit but it was beautifully done.

This is my first time seeing the Nutcracker performed by SF ballet. I love the costumes and had a great evening with friends. We all enjoyed this classic especially during the holidays.
