Nutcracker with the San Francisco Ballet

December 29 2019

For the first time, we attended a formal performance as an entire family (it was Kiki’s first show!), seeing Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker ballet with the San Francisco Ballet. The show was as pleasing as always, and we were especially impressed by the beautiful design of scenery on stage.

The most stunning moment of the ballet was the end of the first act, when we are first transported to the land of sweets. It started “snowing” on stage, and the finale resulted in huge buckets of snow getting dumped on the dancers. It was a nice visual effect, definitely keeping well with the season.

It's snowing on stage!
