‘The Nutcracker’ Starts Friday


I have to be honest—I haven’t been to the Sacramento Ballet’s production of The Nutcracker in years. But I still remember that my favorite parts are the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy and the Marzipan dance. Tomorrow, I’ll have a chance to see them again. This season’s performance of The Nutcracker begins on Dec. 10 and runs through Dec. 23. Tickets cost anywhere from $12 to $65, depending on seating. Want a sneak preview to get yourself amped up?
