The Columbia, Harvard, and University of Chicago alumni clubs celebrate a gala performance of San Francisco Ballet’s Nutcracker this holiday season. A Sugar Plum Fairy world of holiday magic awaits inside the resplendent Opera House in a wonderland of supersized candy, teddy bears, toy soldiers and such things that are usually visible only to young people nodding off to sleep.
We reserved fabulous seats in the Premium Dress Circle at a special group discount with Family Night extras. Our Family Night includes a gift for the first 500 children arriving, lobby photo ops with Nutcracker characters 6-6:30 p.m. and juice and cookies at Intermission.
