@ The Opera house
December 12-29, 2014 Get ready for the theater event of the holiday season. The whimsical world of The Nutcracker has been a tradition at the majestic Opera House since 1944. Come experience the enchanting world first conjured up in St. Petersburg, Russia back in the late-19th century. Today, Tchaikovsky's classical score is one of the most well known musical suites in the world. Follow the action as colorfully costumed characters take the stage. Ballerinas carefully poised at the top of their toes perform the famous Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies. The various toys and ensemble casts take turns as each group dances along to the live orchestra. The story is a magical tale that pleases an all-age crowd. Whether it’s your first time seeing the show or a must-see every year, you won’t want to miss this rendition by the magnificent SF Ballet. Watch as the toys come to life, the Great Mouse King twirls, and a towering Christmas tree emerges from the floorboards. The local ballet troupe will delight audiences with weekend and weekday performances of this special seasonal event. Reserve your seats starting December 12th and continuing until December 29th. An evening show is perfect for a date night with your special someone. The matinee is well timed for little ones who will be awed by the exciting action on stage. Make reservations at our San Francisco hotel to experience classical ballet like you’ve never seen it before.
