Next time I would go for the more expensive seats; the view was fine but the people around us were rude.

The upper balcony is scary for anyone with height issues, but you could still see the ballet really well

I would not sit in the upper balcony due to the fact that one of our family members has a highly issue and it was kinda high. Once the lights turned off they where okay but was a little freaky being at that kinda incline that high.

This December, the California Ballet Company celebrates its 440th performance of the fantastical children’s tale that has pirouetted its way into holiday tradition. Soon after her toy nutcracker doll comes to life, Clara helps him wage an elaborately choreographed battle with the evil Mouse King. With Tchaikovsky’s eternal score, the San Diego Symphony’s melodious accompaniment guides the couple’s journey and hypnotizes passing children to dance among them onstage. Before Clara meets the Sugar Plum Fairy and awakens from her dreamscape, she and the Nutcracker Prince pas de deux in the Land of Snow, whose arctic flusters fume from more than 700 pounds of dry ice. With unfettered views from within the grand 2,910-seat theater, audiences become absorbed in the wintry wonderland on stage as the young Clara twirls beneath the Christmas tree. After the 1 p.m., 2:30 p.m., and 5:30 p.m. performances, ticketholders can attend Sugar Plum Parties to meet the cast.
