Wonderful performance at a great venue. Only great things to say about this family event. But disapointed in seat selection, having selected highest level option but still being at back of theater...

This was a delight to see a production that is well produced and with live music. The venue was beautiful and it was nice to see family dress up for this annual event.

It was a beautiful production with great costumes and a very talented cast. Love the horse also, and good flying and pyro, but also very good dancing and lots of fun.

Fantastic production! We've seen dozens of Nutcracker productions and this was probably the best! Dancing was excellent and costumes and scenery fabulous!

WONDERFUL performance!!! We try to see a different production of The Nutcracker every year and aside from the 15 or shows I was in as a child and seeing my daughter dance in it, this was one of the best! Bravo to Long Beach Ballet Company! :)

Although the ballet was fun to watch, it was not "heartfelt" like other ballets I've been to. The performers are doing a routine, not dancing, if that makes any sense.

I have a wonderful time. It was first time seeing the nutcracker since I was a little girl and it was just as memorable. I am hoping to get a large group together next year and go see it again.

The performance was better than I expected it to be! There were some surprises and some modern upgrades to the traditional choreography.
