I was so disappointed in this Russian Nutcracker ballet. The performance was okay but the Wiltern theatre was not a place for a ballet. The staff let people keep coming in after the show started, and people were eating food and snacks during the...continued

I was very disappointed all the way around. There are some very good dancers, but many sub-par ones. I expected more of a group from Russia but this was obviously more of a commercial enterprise than a group with high artistic integrity. ...continued

It was BEAUTIFUL! Dance was graceful and exciting, costumes were gorgeous, and the music felt like Christmas ... Been a rough November and December with my mother's help so greatly appreciate efforts to accommodate wheelchair. Top class experience...continued

It was our 1st time at this theatre and I would never come back. Our tickets said Floor4, so we assumed that was the 4th floor only to learn there was no 4th floor and could not find someone to help us find our seats without standing in a long...continued

Our seats were terrible, and not at all as advertised. The orchestra seats were folding chairs all at the same level it was impossible to see! Luckily we were able to move to the balcony for the second act so we could actually SEE the dancing. As...continued

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 expecting more from the Russian Ballet but they were not even in sync. Total waste...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. For the price this was the worst venue. The concessions were crowded and...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 dancing was great but the floor-level seating was terraced with rows of chairs on each level at the same elevation so that if you were not in the first row of the terrace or much taller than the person in front of you you had a very obstructed...continued

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 ball room chair seating. Had this been a rock concert where we could stand it...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 and facilities are ancient. If you have disables, I didn't see elevators. I...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 that led to no where. The staff was brusque and disorganized, seemingly...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 Ballet, and Los Angeles Ballet and although there were a couple reasonable...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 types of seating (bar stools and regular chairs) to the fact that people are...continued

What a horrible experience! Where to start? The ticket stated to just enter the venue, but there were long lines outside without anyone directing people. Inside, there were no attendants to direct people either. I've never been to an event where I...continued
