Great customs and kid-friendly. The kids were better behaved than the adults who talked throughout the ballet. Seats were the worst I've had so far with Red Velvet. LL next to the door so we were constantly bothered by the ushers who also kept...continued

The performance was great! Unfortunately the seats that you gave me were separated and I was with a friend. I was disappointed because I pay velvet red to get better locations but it is not good that you do not care of this kind of situations. I...continued

There's nobody out there who does Nutcracker better than this troupe. If you haven't already, go see it - you will be glad you did.

The ballet troupe appeared to be a bunch of students from a mediocre dance school. The choreography was mediocre. Only bright spot was the segment with the dancers/acrobats.

Pros: Costumes were beautiful. Female dancers were good with somewhat strong technical and unique moves. The strongest piece to the ballet was how in synch the dancers were. Very synchronized and flowing together beautifully. The pieces with a...continued

This was the most incredible thing I have ever watched. Given the money and time I will go every single year. I could not take my eyes off of the dancers. The difference between a good production and a great production is if you see any effort...continued

The painted scenes were very nice, the dancers were great. Highlight was the couple that did lifts and acrobatics. The lead rat was freakishly tall and skinny, he played a perfect part. a couple of the men were able to show their strength in...continued

Even better than last year's performance. The addition of animal costumes representing the areas of the world during the second Act was a nice touch to the world celebration.

I loved the ballet. I've seen the Nutcracker many times and this was fantastic. I went with my 10 year old daughter who also loved it.

No live orchestra for this music? Crummy speaker system. Dancers were not coordinated. The performance had more of a circus atmosphere.
