The Nutcracker
With the San Francisco Ballet
Sometimes, a gift isn’t just a gift. It’s a key to a new world. A young heroine. A Nutcracker-turned-prince. The small but mighty army of mice. The beautiful conclusion of a sugar plum celebration. It’s a story so good, that it bears retelling again and again. All the characters you know, and love are back for another thrilling performance of San Francisco Ballet’s Nutcracker. Enjoy exquisite dancing, stunning sets, and Tchaikovsky’s popular score played live by the Grammy award-winning San Francisco Orchestra.
