Loved every minute of the performance. Costumes,staging, music only upstaged by the dancing. The youngsters were adorable.

It was the perfect Christmas Lift-off I was looking for.

I love "The Nutcracker", we used to go every year, now I go every 5 years or so. The staging is beautiful, the orchestra was fabulous, the performers were wonderful. We had to split our party so I spent 1/2 of the show in the balcony and 1/2 the...continued

Frankly, the props and the dancing aren't as good as the San Francisco Ballet. (I mean, a cardboard tree? Really???) You can watch the SF version on Comcast on-demand to see what I mean. Since both ballets charge about $60 with fees for a rear...continued

In my opinion, there are 2 acts with an intermission. The first act was very well done. The story line was classical. These young Joffrey people are talented. The second act must have been done more in an interpretive dance style. If it wasn't for...continued
