Beautiful performance, costumes and dancers. Lacking a live orchestra, and more elaborate sets / backdrops.

I felt "tricked" when it listed as a Russian Ballet....so my expectations was really high. I got really good seats, only to be dismayed by all the ballet students dancing...probably the whole school of ballet came. They had so many cute little...continued

In one word - Perfection. The music, skilled performers (who adored their well- earned applause ) costumes, background scenery, all blended beautifully. The renowned skill of Russian ballet dancers brought back sweet memories of seeing the Ballet...continued

The costume were lavish, rich with color. The choreography stale, the dancers mediocer and music canned. Your entertainment dollars would be better spent supporting the local City Ballet.

We buys LOTS of Goldstar tickets, always with Will Call pick-up. Imagine our unpleasant surprise when the box office told us we could only get our tickets by downloading online (this, 10 minutes before curtain). We weren't the ONLY folks this...continued

We had requested balcony so we could look down on the production, but were given main floor seating on the right side. It was difficult to see the stage with the head of the person in front of me right in my field of view. Fortunately, because...continued

Costumes were beautiful, and overall the dancing was very good with an excellent performance by the Prima Ballerina. There were a few notable errors but not enough to adversely affect the evening's performance. The stage seemed to be too small...continued

The dancers were excellent. Choreography was very different from what we see in the US so we don't know what to expect. We found this refreshing. The costumes were beautiful. It was a great pity there were not more in the audiance.

I was very disappointed with the performance of the Nutcracker by the Russian Ballet. I thought that the dancing would have been better than any ballet company from the states and so I opted to see this one rather than the local ballet company's...continued

Fantastic first ballet experience. If you're planning on seeing The Nutcracker than go buy your ticket to the next performance of the Moscow Ballet. Copley was a great venue for the show, wish I'd bought better tickets than the balcony but the...continued

The dancing and costumes were awesome! I felt the sound system used to broadcast the music was flat.

The venue is lovely though may not be best for ballet and the scenery was very well done. The performances on the other hand were flat and without energy. The choreography tended to be unimaginative. The cors de ballet was often off beat slightly...continued
