I was in the Nutcracker 30 years ago and have many fond memories doing the Chinese section in the second act. This new production is beautifully choreographed and danced. The production design and costume design are breathtaking. The attention to detail in this is production is evident from the imaginative opening sequence to the final grand pas de deux. I loved the sequence showing Clara shrinking down to the size of her toys. Theatre magic at it's best. The new setting and concept of taking place during the 1915 SanFrancisco World's Fair fits the story so perfectly you would think it was written during that time period. I recommend this fine production to anyone who loves the Nutcracker or just wants to see some very spectacular classic ballet dancing. A+++
