Review from Brent Anderson

This was the most lackluster half effort of any performance We have ever viewed. Extreemly dissapointed in the either seemingly tired or inexperienced performers.
Left during intermission with no regrets other than the money wasted on this Great...continued

Review from Eliane Siqueira Sasso

Too many steps to climb to a mezzanine which is really a balcony. There was no live music but a playback.The dancers were good. But the puppets on the back were distracting and I did not like them. The lines to the will call were way too long.

Very disappointing! Canned music played over a poor sound system & dancers with very little energy. Cheap-looking roll-down "scenery" (painted flats). Poor lighting. Back-of stage dancers in shadows. Looked like producers were trying to save money...continued

Ballet was ok, but long lines to get will call tickets, $20 for parking, people waiting snacks in the theater because they allow it, like popcorn, poor seats in the balcony, made it not so fun.

Ballet was great; horrible venue as no one could see -- kid, mother or granddaughter all struggled to see the stage from what one would assume would be decent seats.

For the price of the ticket, I felt I got what I paid for. The dancing was alright and they were dancing to a track as opposed to a live orchestra.

I am glad I went but it was "Just ok" compared to other productions I have seen of the Nutcracker

I have never been to a ballet and I had my reservations about going to one, but I figured it was the Nutcracker and I should probably see it, right?

I am now very aware that I am not a ballet person. So I can't offer any critique on the...continued

The ballet itself was wonderful. The caliber of dance was exactly what you'd expect from a professional Russian company.

The ballet was ok but I will not go back and see anything at The Wiltern until they get theater seating. They had chairs set up and u could not see over the people in front of you. I spent the first half moving around to see to where I finally...continued

The performance was great! But the venue was not that organized it handling the event.

The show itself was okay. I was expecting more from the dancers but they all looked young and inexperienced. The real issue was the venue, The Wiltern. They had chairs and not your usual theater seats which were very uncomfortable. Secondly,...continued

Review from Erin Vaughn Carter

The Wiltern is a beautiful venue but the actual performance by the Moscow Ballet was a bit of a letdown. They omitted some key scenes such as Clara sailing away as she starts off to dreamland and most surprisingly the three Russian men who, in my...continued

Review from heysweetavenue

This was really a sub-par production - there was no live orchestra, the sets looked like they'd had minimal effort put into them, the costumes weren't super impressive, and there were weird instances where people dressed as bears, unicorns, and...continued
