How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
We have seen the Nutcracker in New York at Lincoln Center many times. The NY Christmas tree in Act I cannot be beat. The Joffrey Production is quite different. Godfather Drosselmeyer acts as a magical host throughout the production. The dancing is great. The famous dances in the second act are played slower especially the Arab Dance. The dancing follows the musical phrasing and make sense for me. The live orchestra, played the Tchaikowsky score extremely well. We are planning to take our grand children next year. Absolutely ***** Go see it; you will love it!!!
