Mark Morris--What a 'Nut'!
Octavio Roca for San Francisco Chronicle
West Coast Premiere of joyful, funny work
Mark Morris brought The Hard Nut to Berkeley on Saturday night, and the Nutcracker will never be the same. Then again, it may just be more of everything that is wonderful about this happiest of ballets. Could this be the Nutcracker for the 21st century?
