It was just O.K. - I was disappointed that the Nutcracker remained a doll throughout the entire performance. He usually comes to life & participates in the dream, as all of the other characters & animals do. Only the main "prince" was priceless...continued

Probably the best Nutcracker you'll ever see produced by a ballet school. Beatiful back drops and costumes. Amazingly talented young dancers. Mr Daukayev as Drosselmeyer himself and SF principal Maria Kochetkova guest stars as sugar plum - such...continued

I paid $49 for 2 tickets that were orchestra/balcony instead of the lowest $12 per ticket -- I wanted the best seats possible. When we got to the theater, the tickets we were given were in the mid balcony with a face price of $17. This did not...continued

When I ordered the tickets I was unaware that this company is actually a dancing school, however, I was quickly charmed by the young, dedicated dancers. They were marvelous., and the costumes, which are especially important in a holiday...continued

Charming, magical version of The Nutcracker, with gifted, well trained students, who seemed to be having a great time. We had a great time, too.

I initially intended to attend the Long Beach ballet, and somehow I ended up with the wrong purchase. In any case my 8 guests and I , ages ranging from 55 and one teen, and one 6 year old attended. We drove for several hours to attend. I...continued

I liked seeing yet another version of the Nutcracker. I think his team did a wonderful job with decorations and costumes. My niece was part of the performance so it made it even more special.

Had a fantastic time at this event. I went with my mom, mother-in-law, sister, and two daughters (ages 4 and 5) and everyone enjoyed it regardless of their age differences. I wasn't sure if my daughters would have the patience to sit through the...continued

It was a good performance. My first time seeing the nutcracker again in years. I enjoyed it. Mostly went there to see Maria Kochetkova performed. She is an amazing dancer. She did a great Sugar-Plum Fairy role. I wouldn't mind going again to see...continued

It was meteocre. I've seen much better Nutcrackers. This was very amateur. The seats, although were in the center balcony, were not great because you could see everyone's head in front of you. This was my worst Goldstar event yet.

Poor view. Had a hand rail bar in the middle of our view. People walking in and out during the commencement of the performance. Also, doors were left open during musical. Had to walk out and looking to request a refund.

The event itself was fine - gorgeous sets and costumes, the dancing, and the beautiful music. However, my complaint is with the patrons. We were in the balcony and there were so many late arrivals who were seated further down in our row or in...continued
