The San Francisco Ballet Presents Nutcracker

Join The University of Chicago, Harvard, and Columbia alumni clubs in celebration of a gala performance of the 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 from 6:00-6:30 p.m., and milk and cookies at intermission.

Join us early, 6:00-6:45 p.m. at our self-host Meet and Greet in the 3rd floor Café Express area near our Premium Dress Circle seats. Café Express offers light dinner fare including, sandwiches, salads, desserts, champagne and soft drinks. Note: We must be in our seats by 6:50 p.m.

Street parking is available, but the easiest parking option is the Performing Arts Garage on Grove St. between Franklin and Gough ($15 all evening, 415.252.8238). Parking is also available in the Civic Center Plaza garage or Fox Plaza. You can also use transit via Civic Center BART or Van Ness MUNI.
