I loved this very magical production of the Nutcracker! I heard a lot about this show over the years but this was my first opportunity to see it & I really enjoyed it! If you haven't seen it, what are you waiting for?

My 9 yr old great-granddaughter thought it was "awesome". It was a wonderful way to start the holiday season. Thanks to Red Velvet we had great seats.

My grandson and I enjoyed the lavish production. However, the tickets, even with the Goldstar discount, were ridiculously expensive given the location of the seats. Next year I’ll stick to the less extravagant Oakland Ballet at the glorious...continued

The performance appeared flawless and the dancing was excellent, They were so light on their feet! The orchestra was also excellent. The only reason I give 4 stars instead of 5 is just that I am not a huge ballet enthusiast. Still, all in all,...continued

Very enjoyable performance. SF Ballet's Nutcracker is a fun holiday tradition. The sets, costumes and staging are all very good. Good family activity.

Great ballet, they changed it up a bit from the past few years, which was nice. My only complaint is the seats have very little leg room, which makes it uncomfortable for someone like me with long legs. I think the seats in the orchestra section...continued

It would be hard to imagine a better Nutcracker. The story as it is told is charming, and meaningful in a wonderful way. The dancing is first rate, no matter who performs the various roles on any given performance, because SF Ballet with its...continued

San Francisco Ballet's Nutcracker is always top-notch, and this Edwardian (1915 Panama-Pacific Exposition) setting really brings it home for local audiences. It plays up Clara's magical experience as that of a child on the verge of adolescence,...continued

Beautiful production, very creative, based on Tchaikovsky's original ballet with the San Francisco flavor. I would say the technical part of the dancing was slightly lacking perhaps because regular lead cast members were not dancing that night,...continued

SF Nutcracker is always wonderful and festive. Love seeing the families and kids all dressed up. Only annoying thing were the people screaming "Programs!". I felt like I was at a ballgame.

The first act had wonderful sets. The second act was disappointing this respect. I usually like the second act better because the music is more engrossing, but not this time. Always wonderful to go the the War Memorial, and the prices were...continued

Unfortunately, there was a 1yr old toddler talking and running back & forth, completely annoying and NO ushers to monitor. There is no excuse for the opera house to allow this to happen and should be more astute when allowing young children to...continued
