SFB has a contest going on, and the prize is two VIP tickets to the "Nutcracker" on 26 December.


Mon, Nov 26 — Nutcracker Holiday Challenge #4: Twitter

The challenge: Put yourself in the Twitter shoes of Nutcracker's #1 villain: the Mouse King

It isn’t easy being the villain, and as Nutcracker draws closer, where better for the Mouse King to try and rehabilitate his image than Twitter? SF Ballet challenges you to send us one tweet as the royal rodent himself, imagining what he might say in 140 characters to repair his dastardly reputation. Tweet us @sfballet and use the hashtag #MouseKing—our favorite tweet will win its creator two “Winner’s Box” tickets to SF Ballet’s Nutcracker on December 26 at 7pm.

Contest closes 4pm Thurs, Nov 29, 2012. Winner will be announced later that day. Limit one entry: read full terms and conditions.

"San Francisco Ballet’s Nutcracker has been chosen as the only American production to compete in Ovation TV’s sixth annual programming event, “Battle of the Nutcrackers,” featuring six different Nutcracker productions from around the world, and a chance for viewers to vote on their favorites. This event also marks the U.S. cable premiere of SF Ballet’s Nutcracker.

Additional productions competing in this year’s “Battle of the Nutcracker” include: The Nutcracker: Mariinsky 2012; The Royal Ballet’s The Nutcracker (2009); Bolshoi Ballet’s The Nutcracker; Matthew Bourne’s Nutcracker! ; and Australian Ballet’s Nutcracker: The Story of Clara."


SF Ballet should win for best Act 1 - though the SF Act II might be a more controversial choice. ;)
