We love this holiday event and travel from Santa Cruz every December to see it. The War Memorial Opera House is so elegant -- perfect for this classic.
This year we took photos with a few of the cast who were in the lobby for this purpose. So...continued

The show was great! Tickets were a bit further away than I'd prefer, but it was still a good time. Would go again!

Beautiful Classic Event. A great excuse to get all dressed up. The family performance was great for my kids--a free toy when we arrived, juice and cookies during intermission. We got stuck and traffic and missed the photo op with the characters...continued

It is a very well constructed show, wonderful music, wonderful set up. My girls of 7, 9 were fascinated, though as family oriented show it has very little dancing finally.

The SF Ballet's "Nutcracker" tradition lived on in tonight's performance. ENCORE! members were out in force. The principal dancers are great but I have to remind myself to catch what the many secondary characters are doing.

This performance was beyond sublime. Until I saw it last night, I didn't realize that what the production crew accomplished was even technically possible on stage -- I'd thought it could only be done on the silver screen. The whole evening was...continued
