Nutcracker from Backstage

For a different, close-up perspective on Nutcracker, SF Ballet photographer Erik Tomasson shoots a few performances just a few feet offstage, in the wings. Because they reveal details both of the production and the performers, these images offer a different, more intimate look at this holiday classic.
