This production of the Nutcracker was stunning. The set was so beautiful and the costumes were cheery and colorful. The time flew by, it was so enjoyable. The Washington Ballet Company are awesome.

The best presentation of a version of Nutcracker that we have seen. Great staging, beautiful dancing. My 8 year old son enjoyed it as much as i did.

Septime Webre's version of "The Nutcracker" is lush and gorgeous and magical and truly enchanting -- everything a performance of "The Nutcracker" should be (and too often is not). It's hard to imagine a more beautiful stage setting or...continued

The performance/dancing was moderate in quality based on others I have seen before -- with a few exceptions it was unremarkable.

The set design was amazing (particularly in the first act, which sets up the story). The costumes, lighting, and the use of color were also superb. My sister and I agreed that the fake snow was a bit loud as was the dancing of the younger...continued
