The view was obstructed by people in front and was difficult to see the show and enjoy . Not a pleasant experience .

There were great improvements to the seating this year. They added risers to the rows on every level, so all seats have a clear view, and there aren't obstructions like last year. Anyone who decided not to attend because of bad views should be...continued

This was the first time I attended a performance at The Grove. It was also the last. The seating is terrible. We spent the first half of the show staring at the back of heads and then left. I can't understand how a theater could be designed and...continued

We had took three girls ages 4, 5 and 6. They loved it as much as the three of us adults. The ballet was superb and the sets and costumes were amazing. I highly recommend this. I know my family will make an annual event out of this if the...continued

With regard to the venue itself, I agree with the other reviews...a poor seating arrangement for a ballet performance. I could hardly see the dancers at all!! Not much to get very excited about . . . except for the young girl who danced the part...continued

A must see for the whole family. Anaheim Ballet's rendition of the Christmas classic is an enjoyable blend of classical ballet, talented performers, and a big dose of fun and creativity.

The performers were outstanding and the choreography...continued

As many have stated the seating at the Grove was very bad, especially if you take a little person. I didn't get to see much and my niece had to keep moving chairs.

I was a little disappointed that the fighting scene between the mice and the...continued

Had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed the performance. Was a tad disappointed that there was not a live orchestra, but the dance perfomance was good; especially the children.

I agree with others as well. The venue was the wrong place for a ballet or any time of play. The seating was horrible for viewing the stage and the chairs were very uncomfortable. The props could have been nicer. The performace itself was really...continued

I agree with the other reveiwers; the ballet was great, but the seating was unbearable. I had my granddaughters and they could not see the stage from where we were seated. We got up and stood next to the wall infront of the railing during the...continued

I bought tickets for my family to attend the Nutcracker. The seats were so bad that they could see nothing, and they left after about 10 minutes. I will be very hesitant to get tickets from Goldstar in the future.

I copied someelses review below, but need to add my own 2cents as well. It was not suitable venue seating to enjoy such an event. My 6 yr child along with many other children could not see a thing. I spent the whole time with him on my lap and...continued

I enjoyed what I could see of it. Since the seating is not tiered we were not able to see the performances very well. My son who wanted to see his cousins & aunt perform was at a particular disadvantage. Very discouraging. We won't go back to...continued

I took my family to see the show on 12-10-2011. The show and casting were just ok. The chairs were not comfortable.

I was very disappointed with the visibility. What made it worse was that the screens, the large screens that most events have so that viewers are able to see what is going on on stage, were turned off.
I had 4 children with me and all struggled...continued

My family and I really enjoyed it. It was lovely. I would recommend it for families during the holidays. Even my 12 year old son enjoyed it.

My first time at this facility. Chair seating not so comfortable. Ballet was what one would expect @ $15.00 per ticket. I will say our seat location was excellent and stage visibility was also great. The performance was medium.
