How was your experience?
The Alameda Civic Ballet's "Nutcracker" was OK. It was more a community & local venue at a school auditorium with cute little kids on stage. I thought it would be more of a professional production with a live orchestra, magical theatrical design/costumes and seasoned adult star performers. It was OK...more homespun....just don't expect a Smuin or SF Ballet kind of event. -- Goldstar fan in Marin
