How was your experience?
The performance was incredible. When I was looking for a performance, I wanted something that had a live orchestra. I was not disappointed in the performance at all! The special effects were amazing. The dancers were all terrific (although I have a daughter in ballet and have been to many recitals so I am completely over thinking that little dancers that make lots of mistakes are cute and adorable...its a professional performance, I really expected everyone to be polished...but plenty of people find them entertaining). I would definitely recommend this and hope to be able to go again next year!! My only negative feedback would be in regards to our tickets. I was disappointed with where they were located. We were practically in the back row (3 rows short) and had a difficult time seeing. I completely understand that was well within the boundaries set by Goldstar, however I didn't expect that we'd get the worst seats in the section they sold...there was even open seats in front of us. I had signed up for the Red Velvet hoping to be "at the top of the list" to get better seats and was disappointed with were we sat. Oh well, lesson learned. The Nutcracker, GREAT....Goldstar's seats...not so great.
