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

Great performaces! Wonderful show that puts you into the holiday spirit. My only complaint would be regarding the seating. I was seated about half way back and had to constantly look around the heads of people seated in front of me in order to...continued

i agree the performance seemed like it was good, but we really couldn't see anything...we left at intermission. I was very disappointed in this venue and would not go again unless i had seats very close to stage.

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

I thought that this presentation needed a little more rehearsal by the dancers. Two of us in the party noticed quite a few missteps.

I didn't know this venue allowed refreshments inside the theatre. This made this seem more like a sports event...continued

It was my first time going to a ballet and I brought two of my friends (it was also their first times) and we all really enjoyed it! The costumes were beautiful and the stage and props were amazing! The only problem was the line-of-sight because...continued

My review is the same as the others. I ended up leaving during intermission because I couldn't see anything. Also, I didn't appreciate the fact that the parking was $10.00! Almost as much as the cost of my ticket! They left everyone in the lobby...continued

Nice performance, but horrible venue. The view from the seat was horrible. We stood in the back for the second half of the performance :(

Normally an orchestra accompany a ballet. This one didnt have an orchestra and on top of that they had very bad sound system. Too much statics on the speakers. Costumes and decor was weak.

Seating was on simple chairs. Lack of live orchestra (but I guess for $20 you can't complain). At times it felt like a school play but at other times the performances were very impressive. The parking was ridiculous ($10). Overall it was OK at best.

The actual performance was lovely. However the seating was pretty bad. Worse because I'm not short. Also, it is not stadium seating so we could not see the stage at all. The staff was able to move a few people's chairs off to the side but when...continued

The performers were excellent when I could see them, and the production good. The venue was awful, especially in the 3rd tier seating where I was. There were chairs simply set out on a flat open area, NOT stadium seating, and all I could see...continued

The seating was horrible, it was not stadium seating and this made it very hard to see anything, my husband who is 6' "1 couldn't even see. The performers were good, but I was very disappointed never going to this theater again.

The show itself was AWESOME! However, the seating was not very accomadating to kids, or even adults on most occasions.

The venue was tough due to the flat tiers. We were lucky to move to tier 4 and sit above the crowd. There were 11 in our group and we all enjoyed the performance. I do agree, knowing now the lay of the room, either sit in front or sit in tier...continued
