Nutcracker Live At The War Memorial Opera House San Fran 07

This visually stunning, all-new production of Nutcracker,
choreographed by Helgi Tomasson (artistic director of the San
Francisco Ballet) is a graceful and timeless adventure on a grand
scale. The scenic design by Michael Yeargan, setting the tale at
the time of the 1915 San Francisco World Fair, is sensational.
From the lovely Waltz of the Flowers to the crystalline beauty of
the stunning Snowflake Waltz, each scene is more breathtaking
than the last, bringing to life all the well-known and beloved
characters with fresh sparkle and compelling originality.
Recorded in High Definition video and true surround sound,
this age-transcending production offers a dazzling magical
journey which is garnering critical acclaim throughout the world.
