Christmastime means candy canes, cold weather, warm smiles and of course- Sugarplum Fairies!
What little girl and boy doesn’t’ have dreams of sugarplums dancing, marching toy soldiers, snowflakes and the magic that only this time of year can bring?
I don’t think anyone could argue that the classic ballet “The Nutcracker” is one of the most beloved holiday traditions. And once again, the Sacramento Ballet is proud to feature Ron Cunningham’s “The Nutcracker” here in Downtown Sacramento at the Community Center Theater.
Be transported into a magical world with live music performed by the Sacramento Philharmonic. The dancing, characters and spirit of the holiday season will be a perfect holiday treat for your entire family.

I’m especially excited to go to the Nutcracker this year- as I’m planning on taking my five year old little girl for the first time. She is “All Girl” and I can’t wait to see her expression when she watcher the Sugar Plum Fairy dance across the stage. Absolutely priceless and probably the best Christmas gift I will ever receive!

And on December 9th, if you have your own little “girlie girl”, you may want to sign up for the popular children’s High Tea event. Now I say for the “girlie girls”- but I’m sure little boys would have just as much fun as thier sisters!
3:30pm at the Hyatt Regency Hotel, join the characters from the Nutcracker for a proper High Tea with delectable tea treats.  Take souvenier pictures with the Sugar Plum Fairy and other favorite characters.  This is sure to be an event to remember!

Tickets to this event are $25- please check website for availability.

The Nutcracker Ballet begins on December 7th at 7pm. Show times run from December 7th-23rd. Check their website or call for ticket information and performance times.

    We are looking forward to going as well. Did they find a way to bring back the live music? I have only seen this article stating that there are no plans for the orchestra this year. http://www.sacbee.com/2012/09/23/4845537/sacramento-ballet-wont-use-live.html

      Hi Selena – unfortunately the Sacramento Ballet, in order to keep costs down during this recession, will not have live music for the performance of the Nutcracker. But don’t let that stop you in enjoying a wonderful performance!
