It was my first time going to a ballet and I brought two of my friends (it was also their first times) and we all really enjoyed it! The costumes were beautiful and the stage and props were amazing! The only problem was the line-of-sight because...continued

My review is the same as the others. I ended up leaving during intermission because I couldn't see anything. Also, I didn't appreciate the fact that the parking was $10.00! Almost as much as the cost of my ticket! They left everyone in the lobby...continued

The performers were excellent when I could see them, and the production good. The venue was awful, especially in the 3rd tier seating where I was. There were chairs simply set out on a flat open area, NOT stadium seating, and all I could see...continued

The seating was horrible, it was not stadium seating and this made it very hard to see anything, my husband who is 6' "1 couldn't even see. The performers were good, but I was very disappointed never going to this theater again.

The venue was tough due to the flat tiers. We were lucky to move to tier 4 and sit above the crowd. There were 11 in our group and we all enjoyed the performance. I do agree, knowing now the lay of the room, either sit in front or sit in tier...continued

There were great improvements to the seating this year. They added risers to the rows on every level, so all seats have a clear view, and there aren't obstructions like last year. Anyone who decided not to attend because of bad views should be...continued

This was the first time I attended a performance at The Grove. It was also the last. The seating is terrible. We spent the first half of the show staring at the back of heads and then left. I can't understand how a theater could be designed and...continued

We had took three girls ages 4, 5 and 6. They loved it as much as the three of us adults. The ballet was superb and the sets and costumes were amazing. I highly recommend this. I know my family will make an annual event out of this if the...continued

A must see for the whole family. Anaheim Ballet's rendition of the Christmas classic is an enjoyable blend of classical ballet, talented performers, and a big dose of fun and creativity.

The performers were outstanding and the choreography...continued

As many have stated the seating at the Grove was very bad, especially if you take a little person. I didn't get to see much and my niece had to keep moving chairs.

I was a little disappointed that the fighting scene between the mice and the...continued

Had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed the performance. Was a tad disappointed that there was not a live orchestra, but the dance perfomance was good; especially the children.

I agree with the other reveiwers; the ballet was great, but the seating was unbearable. I had my granddaughters and they could not see the stage from where we were seated. We got up and stood next to the wall infront of the railing during the...continued

I bought tickets for my family to attend the Nutcracker. The seats were so bad that they could see nothing, and they left after about 10 minutes. I will be very hesitant to get tickets from Goldstar in the future.

I enjoyed what I could see of it. Since the seating is not tiered we were not able to see the performances very well. My son who wanted to see his cousins & aunt perform was at a particular disadvantage. Very discouraging. We won't go back to...continued

I loved it! The Anaheim Ballet is a very talented group! This was the second year in a row I saw this production of The Nutcracker, and the City National Grove of Anaheim is the perfect venue for an event like this! Risers were added to each...continued

I took my family to see the show on 12-10-2011. The show and casting were just ok. The chairs were not comfortable.
