Great Performances: Dance in America: San Francisco Ballet's Nutcracker

San Francisco Ballet was the first ballet company in America to present Tchaikovsky's ballet "Nutcracker." It's been a holiday tradition ever since. This Christmas season, KQED's co-production with San Francisco Ballet, filmed in HD, features a dazzling new interpretation of the holiday favorite inspired by the San Francisco's 1915 Pan-Pacific Exposition and hosted by Olympic gold medalist and Bay Area native, Kristi Yamaguchi.
