How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
We all love the "regular" Nutcracker Ballet so I had my doubts about this "Chinese Acrobat Nutcracker" production. But....this turned out to be very good....especially the 2nd act. Loved it! My only problem was with the audience who sometimes drowned out the beautiful music in favor of applauding loudly for the "acrobatic tricks". I still think it is the genius of Tchaikovsky and his music that is the most important part of "The Nutcracker". That being said, when this production comes back....GO SEE IT! I think you'll like it!
