Nutcracker Benefit Luncheon: Land of Dreams

Sunday, December 12, 2021
Zellerbach Rehearsal Hall | War Memorial Opera House


11:30 AM: Luncheon and Activities at Zellerbach Rehearsal Hall
2 PM: Matinee performance of Nutcracker at War Memorial Opera House

Journey with us to the Land of Dreams. The Nutcracker Benefit Luncheon will triumphantly return to Zellerbach Rehearsal Hall on Sunday, December 12, 2021.

We are so excited to welcome you, your family, and your friends back to celebrate the joy of the holiday season and the magic of SF Ballet’s Nutcracker!

The magical day will begin at our very own Nutcracker wonderland at Zellerbach Rehearsal Hall with lunch, sweet treats, and activities for the whole family. This year we are pleased to introduce some new activities, as well as bringing back favorites from years past. Following lunch, guests will make their way across the street to the War Memorial Opera House for a matinee performance of Helgi Tomasson’s beloved Nutcracker.

We have reduced the capacity for the event this year, and we expect tickets to sell out quickly. This year, as we transition back to in-person celebrations, we will only offer full table packages. If you wish to split a table with another family, we would be pleased to assist you with your purchase. Simply contact Meg Sullivan at msulivan@sfballet.org. All proceeds from this annual event benefit SF Ballet School’s world-class training, Youth Programs, and the SF Ballet School Scholarship Fund.

Additionally, if you are unable to attend the event, but wish to support this wonderful holiday tradition you can make a contribution that will help create magical holiday experiences for our valued community partners, the Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco and North San Mateo.

To ensure the safety of all patrons, SF Ballet plans to use a combination of proof of vaccination, negative COVID test, and masks.

Contact Meg Sullivan at msullivan@sfballet.org or 415-865-6625 with any questions.
