How was your experience?
The Nutcracker Ballet was put on by the Long Beach Ballet which is a large, teaching organization. The enthusiasm of each of the young dancers, many of whom were appearing in front of a live audience for the first time, added to the enjoyment of the event. The production was dramatic with, as promised, pyrotechnics and special effects. Well staged and produced, it was a nice way to start the holiday week. Every one in attendance seemed to be in a festive mood. I purchased one of the programs which I thought was very well done.
