Seating was so bad that we left during intermission. All I see are the head of the people in front of me. My friend is 5'8" and can't hardly see either. I was... continued

Terrible venue, amateur performers--clearly a ballet school, not professionals. Even the sets and costumes were bland. This was clearly done on a budget. If you're looking for a great performance, this is NOT it.

That is a very good show. I just was a little bit confused by people about who ate a popcorn. This is not a movie, but live actors on the stage.

The Ballet part was good but the Western is like ghetto theater. You don't even sit in a regular theater seat. It was conference chairs roped together or bar stools. ... continued

The ballet was enchanting and the seats were fantastic. I attended with my four 6-10 year old grandchildren - male and female and two daughters. Everyone was delighted.

The Moscow Ballet was spectacular ...for what we were able to see. The Wiltern was a horrible venue and I might as well have been in a high school auditorium given the... continued

The seating was terrible, we were lower than stage level and couldn't see what was happening center stage. The Wiltern is a bad venue. The snack bars are undermanned... continued

The venue was not a good one for a ballet or show. It is only good for a concert. The chairs are uncomfortable and the sound system is "tinny"

This was awful.

Even at Goldstar prices, it was very expensive for what it was. The seating was uncomfortable, was difficult to see the stage and arranged with aisles... continued

This was our first time of seeing the Moscow Ballet and must say we were very disappointed. We have seen performances of The Nutcracker the past few years by the American... continued

This was probably one of my worst theatre experiences EVER. The ballet was mediocre at best. But the worst part was the venue. The Wiltern Theater was horrible. From the... continued

Wow what a horrible experience! The venue itself is not designed for such performances. I couldn't see half of the ballet because of the seating arrangement. Everyone... continued
