Enjoyed the mesmerizing experience of the Marat Daukayev Nutcracker ballet. Beautiful choreography and expert performance. Would definitely see again yearly with different themes.

It was just O.K. - I was disappointed that the Nutcracker remained a doll throughout the entire performance. He usually comes to life & participates in the dream, as all of the other characters & animals do. Only the main "prince" was priceless...continued

A little different from other Nutcrackers in that it didn't completely tell the story but rather featured the entire cast in various dances. It was more like a recital but all levels of the school danced for an enthusiastic (mom, dad, friends )...continued

Probably the best Nutcracker you'll ever see produced by a ballet school. Beatiful back drops and costumes. Amazingly talented young dancers. Mr Daukayev as Drosselmeyer himself and SF principal Maria Kochetkova guest stars as sugar plum - such...continued

I paid $49 for 2 tickets that were orchestra/balcony instead of the lowest $12 per ticket -- I wanted the best seats possible. When we got to the theater, the tickets we were given were in the mid balcony with a face price of $17. This did not...continued

It is a nice presentation with over 100 kids and young adults performing in beautiful costumes from Marat's ballet school. Lots of parents and friends attend - they all bring flowers for the dancers. Nice family event.

Charming, magical version of The Nutcracker, with gifted, well trained students, who seemed to be having a great time. We had a great time, too.
