I've seen various version of the Nutcracker (Russian Ballet in Baltimore, Weber's at the Warner Theatre, and others in Los Angeles), and I have to say that this show exceeded my expectations. I had never been at the Olney Theatre, but it is a nice...continued

It was a great experience. Very good for first time ballet goer/ beginners. It was not too long and the performers were very good. Tickets were well priced. Enjoyed it.

This version applied more artistic license in The Kingdom of Sweets' Russian dance than I would have liked. But that was more than offset by it's rendition of the Mother Gigogne scene. That was an unexpected highlight of this show.

Intimate venue with an outstanding sound system, and unfortunately did not have clear line of sight to stage right, so missed a few reactions of characters on the sidelines. Til now, I have only attended professional performances (5 or 6) with...continued

Loved it. It was beautiful. Seats were not the greatest wish we had been in the newer theater. Parents were putting their kids on their laps making it even harder to see.

The Nutcracker was absolutely well done. The performers, especially, the children were well prepared and knew exactly what to do with every move they made. My friend's grandchild, age 9, liked it very much. Seats were ok if you are tall so we...continued
