The Nutcracker Ballet has become a family tradition for many each year around the holidays. Taking the whole family out to the ballet can take a bite out of your Christmas shopping budget. So each year I make it a tradition to round up the top Nutcracker Ballet discount ticket offers for as many performances as I can find in California.

Each city has its own way of presenting the timeless story of Clara and the Prince. Which Nutcracker is the best? It depends on where you live, your personal likes, and your family needs.
As one example, in my area, the San Francisco Ballet Nutcracker features a special backdrop that depicts the City of San Francisco during the 1915 World’s Fair, and the dancers are decked out in Victorian costumes.
Some cities feature the Hot Chocolate Nutcracker. And you’ll even see special autism and sensory-friendly Nutcracker Ballet performances.
Often considered the best is Moscow Ballet’s The Great Russian Nutcracker, which tours several cities. This one follows composer Tchaikovsky’s complete Nutcracker Suite score. But their second act journey goes to the “Land Of Peace and Harmony” to symbolize cultural unity, instead of visiting the sugar plum fairies scene.
SAVVY TIP: You don’t need a coupon code to crack the deals listed below. None of the current offers need one, although some sources require free sign up to access the best price. These do tend to sell out way ahead of holiday time, so if you know you want to go, plan ahead and save.
