The ballet was Ok. I felt like it was the same as going to the Salt Creek ballet for the nutcracker....performances weren't much better.

The performance was great. Five stars. The price fantastic. The box office at the theatre has problems. Outside the building, ushers had people stand in line for over an hour just to find out they were in the wrong line. The theatre personnel...continued

The performance itself was good. Basic costumes and scenery, nothing lavish. The worst part was having to wait in the will call line for 45 minutes to get our tickets and having the performance start 20 minutes late. Very poorly organized and...continued

This production of the Nutcracker was utterly lacking in charm. It was undistictive, very poorly choreographed and executed, and accompanied by muddy-sounding music. What a huge disappointment!! I'll stick to the Joffrey Ballet's infinitely...continued

It was great. Only one problem and that was the fact that everyone did will call pick up and so it took 45 minutes to get our tickets.

Overall I would say this event was good value for the price I paid for discounted tickets. I'm not sure I would feel the same had I paid full price.

No one beats the Russians for stellar ballet technique and continuity of performance, and the...continued

Some people might think that the children being part of the performance might detract from the experience. I would strongly disagree with them. I loved the performance with the children. AND the professionals' performance was excellent.

The ballet itself was fine. The costumes were great! But the Rosemont was an awful venue. Program started at 3pm and there was a line out the door for will call for tickets! And then when we got into the theater the person who took us to our seats...continued

The ballet was well done and the theatre was beautiful. However, the Will Call was an absolute disaster. There were only two windows open and Goldstar and Groupon customers were in a line wrapped around the block. The line moved extremely...continued

The event was awesome. We had good sets and the ballerinas were wonderful. Great for my daughter who is taking ballet class. She was pumped to continue in her dance class.

the show was good, I love that they incorporate the student dancers in the show. It would be better if they used real stage set rather than back drops, but overall it was good.

The show was amateur plus lines were WAY too long. Venue was nice. Nicely decorated and lit... Otherwise -- nothing special... Go to Joffrey version of Nutcracker.

To our minds, there are at least three factors that determine the enjoyment and value quotient of any performance: The process of procuring admission (tix, deals, payment, etc.); the logistics at the venue (parking, seating, etc.); and the...continued
