Twas the week before Christmas, and though the year’s late, Sterling’s agents keep selling Santa Barbara real estate!
With Christmas less than one week away, there’s plenty to do to keep busy in Santa Barbara! Between selling beautiful Santa Barbara homes, last minute shopping trips to historic State Street, and the many parades and events happening in Santa Barbara to celebrate the season, we at Sterling Properties and Estates have been keeping busy. This weekend we look forward to enjoying a special holiday tradition – watching The Nutcracker Ballet at the Granada Theater in downtown Santa Barbara.
The Granada Theater is a historic venue on State Street in downtown Santa Barbara with a rich history. Originally built in 1924, The Granada Theater has in the last decade enjoyed a triumphant return to glory after an extensive remodeling effort that was completed in 2008. Upgrades include reconfigured seating arrangements to provide each of the theater’s over 1,500 seats with great sightlines, refinements to the acoustics of the theater, a custom designed orchestral shell, restored and improved lighting throughout, extensive “new” Spanish decorative elements, and much more.
Throughout the theater, lobby, and lounges, The Granada’s historic charm has been not only maintained, but enhanced through these renovations. Today, The Granada Theater in Santa Barbara seamlessly blends the use of top-of-the-line equipment in a setting that brings to mind the glamour and elegance of the past.
The Nutcracker will be performed at three times this weekend (Saturday Dec. 22nd at 2:00pm and 7:30pm, and Sunday Dec. 23rd at 2:00pm). The State Street Ballet will be performing their original version of this holiday classic, with music performed live by the Opera San Luis Obispo’s orchestra. The full symphony orchestra will be conducted by internationally recognized conductor Brian Asher Alhadeff. With such a fantastic array of talented performers and musicians, The Nutcracker at The Granada Theater promises to be a magical experience.
Santa Barbara is a wonderful place to celebrate the holidays, and the coastal beauty of the American Riviera makes Santa Barbara magical year-round. We love selling real estate in Santa Barbara every month of the year!
