I love the Wiltern, but it is not appropriate for a ballet. The flat, non-stadium seating ensured that only those who had front rows of sections or the back elevated chairs could see the stage easily. The first half of the show was completely...continued

The ballet was wonderful. The venue not so great. They were very slow in seating people so as a result people were walking in front of my seat during about the first fifteen minutes and then again at the intermission. ugh!

The dancers were mostly fabulous, a few hopping steps here and there. They didn't do the dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy and changed things up a bit from what I'm used to. Clara danced more with the nutcracker, they both did well. I didn't like the...continued

Went with high expectations for the performance, however several factors played into making this not the best overall experience for me. First and foremost was the venue. At one time the Wiltern was quite a nice theater, in recent years utilized...continued

An amazing experience. The only thing I think that should be pointed out is that the theatre itself gets a little cold, the seats are old and not the most comfortable and the water (sparkletts is $4 per tiny bottle). The show though was amazing.

Ballet was good but Wiltern Theatre was horrible! Small space, people walked in and out during performance with beer and food to the seats!

Theatre was terrible. People walked in and out during performance and brought food and beer to their seats! It was like going to a sports event.

The dancers were phenomenal. The costumes were beautiful.BUT,
the seats on the first floor were extremely uncomfortable. They were
cheap dining room chairs instead of plush movie theater seats.
The chairs were so close together that everyone's...continued

The costumes were colorful and beautiful, the dancing made good use of the stage, and it was precise, crisp, and beautifully choreographed. The only drawback was the ushers who could use additional training. They held up people at the entrance...continued

Best seats I've ever had and the best Nutcracker I've ever seen. Hope they return next year. I will definitely be watching for it.

The goldstar seats were perfect but the performance was not. The customes were great! Dancing was fair and stage was the awful. An elementary school would have been better!

I take my granddaughter each year, this is her 4th time, and she loves it. This year, the male dancers stole the show. Their leaps were amazing. Each year is a different show and this was was great. I reccommend it for anyone even if you think...continued

It was clear that this was an exceptional dance troupe;however the seating was horrific. First of all it took a long time to get patrons seated and the ballet didn't start until 30 minutes after the stated time. Then, there were seating areas with...continued

Fairly good show. The Wiltern Theater totally disorganized.
Huge lines. No one knew how to handle entry.

Great dancing and fantastic costumes. Set designs could be better, but that is by Hollywood standards. The show was awesome.

I agree with the other negative comments regarding 1) the venue and 2) the performance. The Wiltern is not appropriate for the ballet - between the popcorn/snacks and terrible seating arrangement (seats are at one level, not increasing height) it...continued
