Awesome special effects and well put together ballet. Loved the fact that it was quite entertaining throughout the show. Amusing mice and little mice costumes. The orchestra was amazing! Highly recommend watching this during the holidays.

I've been going to see this show since I was a little girl, and this was the first year out here n California. It was by far the best show I had been to.

The nutcracker was beautiful. The venue was gorgeous. Our seats were the very VERY backrow of the balcony and the view was still almost perfect. It is definitely a kid show so there was a bit more noise than you'd normally get from a ballet...continued

An absolute delight with no bad seat. A lovely venue to match the excellent show. The entire ticket process was painless as with every Goldstar administered event I have been to.

It was the BEST showing of the Nutcracker I've ever seen! Having a full symphony made such a huge difference. The illusions were awesome and the pyrotechnics added something special. ...and the little children dancing made it perfect!

This event is great for the whole family. There are parts that everyone will enjoy. The Nutcracker is a wonderful Christmas story full of laughter and cheer. The Orchestra was magnificent.
