I confess to being disappointed by the sets. There were a few elaborate sets that were beautiful, but for most of the show there was no set at all, not even a backdrop. It looked a bit, well, cheap!

The orchestra, however, was phenomenal, as...continued

My first time seeing SF Ballet's Nutcracker was about 15 years ago. I waited until now to bring my 6 year old because I knew she would appreciate and enjoy it. She was very inspired by the beautiful performance. She kept telling me, "It's like the...continued

Great show. This was my first time watching the Nutcracker live. Was a really special event for me. I definitely recommend this show for the price. Be warned, it's dark and not a word is spoken so keep that in mind.
