The SF Opera House is a classical hall with grand staircases. Every daughter deserves to be introduced to the dance here, with a front row seat in one of the boxes to see a performance of the Nutcracker Ballet. From that vantage point at the front of the balcony her sparkling eyes will take in all of the sweeping movement while her ears revel in the rich orchestral sound. As she grows she can sit closer, in the cheaper seats on the main floor to really see what the dancers are doing to leap and lift, pirouette and glide. Then she can come with a friend or two to see a world premier by the Ballet or a local premier like "The Little Mermaid." This is not Disneyland. This is really wonderful.
