The Nutcracker 2018
A Uniquely San Francisco Nutcracker Composer: Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky Choreographer: Helgi Tomasson On Christmas Eve 1944, the audience at San Francisco’s War Memorial Opera House experienced the American premiere of Nutcracker. An instant sensation, the ballet launched a national holiday tradition. This holiday season, join us as the lights dim, the music soars, snowflakes swirl, flowers dance, and a little girl dreams about a whole new world in a Nutcracker that is as unique as it is magical. And it's only at SF Ballet.
