Exquisite dancing, beautiful sets, beloved characters, and the music of Tchaikovsky are performed live by the San Francisco Orchestra and the San Francisco Ballet Company. A favorite show for the holidays, it's the story of a young girl, a nutcracker, and a Sugarplum fairy.  

Because of the length of the show, it is recommended for kids 5 and up. The run time is 2 hours, with one intermission. 

Benefit luncheon, sensory-friendly, and school-time performances (for kids as young as 3) are available on select days.
