Ballet was ok, but long lines to get will call tickets, $20 for parking, people waiting snacks in the theater because they allow it, like popcorn, poor seats in the balcony, made it not so fun.

Ballet was great; horrible venue as no one could see -- kid, mother or granddaughter all struggled to see the stage from what one would assume would be decent seats.

For the price of the ticket, I felt I got what I paid for. The dancing was alright and they were dancing to a track as opposed to a live orchestra.

I am glad I went but it was "Just ok" compared to other productions I have seen of the Nutcracker

I have never been to a ballet and I had my reservations about going to one, but I figured it was the Nutcracker and I should probably see it, right?

I am now very aware that I am not a ballet person. So I can't offer any critique on the...continued

It was nice but not as special as I expected. There was a recording instead of an orchestra and there was some distractions of moonwalking dancing animals during the ethnic dances. This may have been to keep the children amused but it was...continued

The ballet itself was wonderful. The caliber of dance was exactly what you'd expect from a professional Russian company.

The ballet was ok but I will not go back and see anything at The Wiltern until they get theater seating. They had chairs set up and u could not see over the people in front of you. I spent the first half moving around to see to where I finally...continued

The show itself was okay. I was expecting more from the dancers but they all looked young and inexperienced. The real issue was the venue, The Wiltern. They had chairs and not your usual theater seats which were very uncomfortable. Secondly,...continued

The Wiltern is a beautiful venue but the actual performance by the Moscow Ballet was a bit of a letdown. They omitted some key scenes such as Clara sailing away as she starts off to dreamland and most surprisingly the three Russian men who, in my...continued

This was really a sub-par production - there was no live orchestra, the sets looked like they'd had minimal effort put into them, the costumes weren't super impressive, and there were weird instances where people dressed as bears, unicorns, and...continued
