This holiday season, gather friends and family to celebrate the return of Nutcracker, an enchanting ballet with a feel-good story about the wonder of childhood. The American holiday tradition of Nutcracker performances started here in San Francisco in 1944. This December, San Francisco Ballet celebrates a joyous return to a magical holiday tradition. Live performances of Nutcracker in the SF War Memorial Opera House run from Dec. 10 – 30, tickets start at $19.
