I love the Nutcracker and I will see it again, however, I will not go in the afternoon again. Too many young children; although I have to say, for the most part very well behaved. It was the parents who were most annoying.

We loved San Francisco Ballet's The Nutcracker! Arrived early to enjoy riding the cable cars, visiting festive Union Square and doing some window shopping. It was a perfect day and the ballet was very well done.

Review from Jeanne Korn

SF Ballet version of Nutcracker is lavish but still tasteful and graceful. We loved every minute. Even the young kids at this matinee were glued to it. And thanks to Goldstar, we had decent seats that didn't break the bank!

It was a great place to see the Nutcracker. You could reserve a table for refreshments before or during intermission. The performance was lovely, I wish there was more set decoration for when the little girl was dreaming. Our seats were great. ...continued

Review from Natacha

This was awesome. I usually attend every year but pay full price for the tickets which can be very costly. So when I got the email for the tickets and it was in the same section that I always sit (Grand Tier), I immediately jumped on it because...continued

We took Bart from the east bay. Walked 3 blocks from Civic Center Station to Opera House, it was so easy. Loved the show.

Had never seen the SF version......hard to believe! Felt far away, even though dress circle premium...

Obviously pretty venue

Friend said she much preferred the older choreography, felt that the stage was bare too much during the dancing...continued
