Candyland at Nutcracker

Inspired by SF Ballet’s Nutcracker’s “Land of Sweets,” Patina Restaurant Group has created a special winter Candyland featuring a curated assortment of candy and sweets that even the Sugar Plum Fairy would approve of. Enjoy Candyland with the whole family during matinees and evening performances of Nutcracker through December 29.

*Family Performances are popular! Lines for entrance to the Opera House and for photos form quickly, so arrive early. Children’s gifts are handed out at the doors on a first come/first served basis, starting one hour prior to curtain. So that our dancers aren’t late for the performance, photo lines must be stopped 30 minutes prior to curtain.
