-ballerinas-2San Francisco Ballet Nutcracker

The Harvard, University of Chicago and Columbia alumni clubs celebrate a gala performance of San Francisco Ballet’s Nutcracker this holiday season. We reserved fabulous seats in the Premium Dress Circle at a special group discount with Family Night extras.

A Sugar Plum Fairy world of holiday magic awaits inside the resplendent Opera House in a wonderland of supersized candy, teddy bears, toy soldiers and such things that are usually visible only to young people nodding off to sleep. Our Family Night includes a gift for the first 500 children arriving, lobby photo ops with Nutcracker characters 6-6:30 p.m. and juice and cookies at Intermission.

Join us early, from 6 to 6:45 PM at our no-host Meet and Greet in 3rd floor Cafe Express area near our Premium Dress Circle seats. Café Express offers light dinner fare including, sandwiches, salads, desserts, champagne and soft drinks. We must be in our seats by 6:50.
