San Francisco Ballet’s Nutcracker Under the Dome brings the most-beloved moments from Nutcracker to life on the Dome’s architecture, projecting our dancers’ forms onto this unique space to create a 360° immersive experience for the audience standing under it. This truly is ballet on the big screen—the Dome’s interior surface area is 11,781 square feet, making it nearly three times the size of a standard IMAX screen. So, how was it done?
Beginning this week, visitors to Westfield San Francisco Centre’s historic Dome will see it transformed each evening into a state-of-the-art surround theater, with this free, six-minute animated 3D light spectacular—inspired by our production of Nutcracker. So gather your friends and family and come celebrate with us and our dancers at the FREE launch event this week…
