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

No orchestra?? At these prices, if there is no orchestra for a ballet, it should be made very, very explicit.

The ballet performance itself SHOULD have been enjoyable. However, the Wiltern Theater staff insisted on accommodating all patrons who arrived late. The Nutcracker began five minutes late at 7:35pm, which is fine, but my view was continuously...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 dancers were absolutely amazing, particularly the principle. However, I did not expect to pay such a high price for NO orchestra (the whole POINT of the nutcracker) and the distasteful dancing choreographed for some of the toys during the...continued

The Moscow Ballet would get a 5 plus stars. The Wiltern Theatre staff was really not prepared for the ballet. I would rate the theatre in comparison to the show a 0. Staff members were dressed in street wear. They continuously seated guests...continued

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

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

This was AWFUL! It felt like going to the worst circus ever, not like going to a professional production. The will call line took over an hour and then there was a line to be seated that was at least 15 minutes. By the time we were seated, the...continued

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
