Awesome special effects and well put together ballet. Loved the fact that it was quite entertaining throughout the show. Amusing mice and little mice costumes. The orchestra was amazing! Highly recommend watching this during the holidays.

First time at the Terrace Theater in LB. Nice venue, and the fountains in front had lit Christmas trees, which made the event even more festive. Was seated in the next to last row in the very back, under air conditioner vents (it was cold). ...continued

The nutcracker was beautiful. The venue was gorgeous. Our seats were the very VERY backrow of the balcony and the view was still almost perfect. It is definitely a kid show so there was a bit more noise than you'd normally get from a ballet...continued

It was the BEST showing of the Nutcracker I've ever seen! Having a full symphony made such a huge difference. The illusions were awesome and the pyrotechnics added something special. ...and the little children dancing made it perfect!

Very nice stage setup and constumes. Not too impressed with the performance. Felt that the dancers missed some cues. Have seen better.

We like to see this ballet every couple of years. This was probably one of the BEST versions of the Nutcracker I've seen, from the orchestra to the dancing it was wonderful.

WOW! I was absolutely blown away by this production. It is by far the best I have seen. The drive to Long Beach was well worth it.

The production value was impressive. The pyrotechnics added a lot. The sets were detailed and beautiful. ...continued
