Beautiful production of The Nutcracker. Clara was fantastic - a beautiful ballerina. The stage was really well decorated, the costumes superb, and the choreography was great. Good value for money!

Dancers were great. Venue seats weren't stadium seating so it was very hard to see. Sat on my legs to try and see over the guy in front of me. They deserve a better venue.

Family friendly event, the dancers were amazing, I only wish the scenery was better. I will say my family enjoyed the snow in the auditorium.

Pros: Beautiful music, dancing and costumes. The show, when I could see it, was phenomenal! I highly recommend the production to anyone that loves ballet, and especially, The Nutcracker.

Cons: The venue, in many ways, is beautiful... but...continued

The Grove has to be the worst venue possible for ballet/live theatre.
Could not see because of the seating set up, and of course in ballet, seeing is "hearing" the story unfold.
A complete waste of time and money!

The production was great! The costumes were beautiful!! Seating was horrible. No one in the 3rd tier could see. Moved to the back after intermission.

This is the first time we attend a showing of The Nutcracker, we have seen it at the movies but never live. It was nice to see ballerinas from ages 9 and up, the coordination, costumes and the choreography was incredible.

I got Tier 1 seats which were on the flat floor so I ended up pretty close to the stage - good. The seating was folding chairs all the same level - bad. The ballet was well-done I thought, a bit amateurish at times but you could tell that they...continued

This is a sub-par production of the Nutcracker. The sets and scenery were pathetic. The dancers were ok (not great) but I couldn't figure out why Clara kept inserting herself into the dances in the Second Act ??? Clara is supposed to sit there...continued

As many have stated, it was impossible to judge to quality of the ballet b/c of the poor viewing. I've attend events at the Grove before and did not expect that it would be so hard to see (I've been at tables, which worked fine, and general...continued

Fantastic dancers and staging; very professional. A must see for every holiday season! I sat in the back of the 2nd tier and could see everything. It isn't stadium seating so I would try to get a seat in the 1st or 2nd tier. $10 for parking, cash...continued

Good performance. The seating at the Grove was not the best venue to be able to gain full enjoyment of the performance.

I enjoyed it very much. It was a very good performance and the sound was great too. I also enjoyed the fact that it was local to a lot of restaurants to eat at before the event.

I had good seats in the tier 2 but tall couple in front blocked everything. We were disappointed since I paid extra for Tier 2 but still got lousy visual. It was a musical so there was no talking or acting, just dancing...Got kind of boring. Kids...continued

I loved it! The Anaheim Ballet is a very talented group! This was the second year in a row I saw this production of The Nutcracker, and the City National Grove of Anaheim is the perfect venue for an event like this! Risers were added to each...continued
