To-Do This Weekend: ‘The Nutcracker’


I know, it’s probably still too early for many of you to give a thought to the weekend. You still have turkey to think about. But a little planning ahead can save you some bucks — and nab you some decent seats — at this weekend’s performance of “The Nutcracker” at the Saroyan Theatre. Ballet co-sponsor Fresno Grand Opera — whose musicians are providing live accompaniment for the event for the first time in years — is holding a “Black Friday” sale through Friday offering 25% off listed ticket prices.

The production, which features 30 professional members of the Sacramento Ballet and more than 100 local dancers, will be performed 1 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. I have a story in Thursday’s Life section about the live-music angle for this year’s show, so be sure and check it out.

Thanks for the tip on the tickets and details about the performance. Any details about the Dec. 10-11 Nutcracker? Any hot deals on those tics?
