A gorgeous venue with old world charm. You feel like you are on a movie set!! And the perfomances are world class; as you would expect....!
I went to see San Francisco Ballet's The Nutcracker with girlfriends each year I lived in California. We made a day of it and would do some Christmas shopping before going to see a matinee. Then, we'd have dinner in Union Square after the ballet ended, before heading back to Sacramento. SF Ballet's production of The Nutcracker is beautifully flawless.... More
The SF Ballet produces one of the best Nutcracker productions we've seen. We've been to it twice now and plan on seeing it again in the future.
Its an adorable adaptation - set in turn of the Century San Francisco. A must see for kids of all ages!
This Company has tradition ballet (like Ballancine and the Russians) of course, but where the excitement comes in is in ballets like The LIttle Mermaid, Raku, Onegin or Cinderella. They combine the incredible sets of New Yorks Met Opera that are simply mind-blowing with darker, more dangerous original versions of tales or new works. Add to that symphonic quality music... More
We went to the Nutcracker on Christmas Eve. It was lovely. Even though we were on the 4th floor and I hate heights, by thirty minutes into it, I had forgotten my fear and was mesmerized. Only the New York City Ballet has provided me with a similar amazing ballet experience.
We have been attending the Nutcracker and other performances at the San Francisco Ballet for many years now. There is not a bad seat in the house. Worth a visit if you are in SF and looking for a bit of culture.
Once you see the SF Nutcracker you are hooked. Have been viewing it for many years...a very special event!
We have been to several different shows/performances, but we are regulars at the annual Nutcracker (38 years and counting). We love the SF Ballet! We have seen various Nutcracker performanes by other troupes, in other venues, around the world, and nothing compares to San Francisco. By far, the best.
San Francisco supports its ballet company, which means it is well-financed for world-class dancers, new choreography, exceptional staging, and a fine orchestra. Besides, the SF Opera House is a grand old building that is worth a visit.
