SF Ballet performs 'Nutcracker' for children at CPMC

San Francisco Ballet's annual holiday classic "The Nutcracker" opens next week. But on Tuesday members of the company brought ballet to those who probably won't get to see it on the stage.

The dancers entertained a group of sick children who wouldn't be able to see the show, so the show came to them.

The land of sugar plum fairies, toy soldiers and waltzing flowers came to life for children at California Pacific Medical Center's California campus.

"The Nutcracker" opens Dec. 9 at the War Memorial Opera House.
