40 minute will-call line. Awful, second rate production. No live orchestra, sets that look they were hand painted by high school students.

I was disappointed there was no orchestra during performance, just music from the tape. I had to park across the street at 2:20 pm for the performance starting at 3pm (not possible to park behind the theater-waited to turn left for 15 minutes...continued

No comparison to the Joffrey. The little kids were adorable, but dancing in the foreground took away from being able to watch the more mature dancers.

The ballet was fine.

The wait in the will call lines was crazy for over 1/2 hour with only 2 windows of 3 open.

Probably others missed the start of the show.

The music was not live it was recorded and the entire first act there was static from the speaker in our section (111). The sound was a bit better in the second act, but not much. I would not recommend this to anyone.

it was very-very bad!
it wasn't ballet and, definitely, not "nutcracker"!
even my 7 & 9 years old kids were disappointed and upset.

The show was good but the administration of the theater was horrible. They are not capable of handling performance with high attendance. I waited more than 45 minutes to finally get my tickets and missed half an hour of the show. Will call service...continued

The performance has nothing to do with professional Moscow ballet. Looked like int was a close to graduation students of School Of Ballet. The Nutcracker dancer was the only one who was close to Russian school of ballet standards. It is very...continued

The sets were a bit sparse but with a smaller stage, it was probably the best they could do. I am used to a more lavish set decoration. The company was adequate, the princials very good, the rest so-so.We did enjoy the experience for me(80) to my...continued

ActI's sound system was poor, but was corrected in Act II. Had trouble seeing some of the performances of the secont act due to the woman in front of me laying her head on her boyfriend's shoulder, but what I did see was very good.
