It was a great experience. Very good for first time ballet goer/ beginners. It was not too long and the performers were very good. Tickets were well priced. Enjoyed it.

This version applied more artistic license in The Kingdom of Sweets' Russian dance than I would have liked. But that was more than offset by it's rendition of the Mother Gigogne scene. That was an unexpected highlight of this show.

The Nutcracker was absolutely well done. The performers, especially, the children were well prepared and knew exactly what to do with every move they made. My friend's grandchild, age 9, liked it very much. Seats were ok if you are tall so we...continued

I loved this performance of the Nutcracker. The dancers were terrific and the sets beautiful. Two difficulties with the venue - the view of the stage was somewhat obstructed by the heads of the other patrons. Also, parking for the Nutcracker...continued

Loved it. It was beautiful. Seats were not the greatest wish we had been in the newer theater. Parents were putting their kids on their laps making it even harder to see.
