The dancing was OK, and we did not expect topnotch. The recording chosen was not great and the sound needs improvement. But it was fun and different, with the magic and aerialists. The theater is lovely, and the price was unbeatable.

Playing the role of Herr Drosselmeyer, professional magician Craig Dickens will dazzle audience members of all ages with illusions; the show also features aerialists from Hollywood Aerial Arts. The ballet corps includes several New York City ballet alumni.
