We have seen many different productions of the Nutcracker and we were impressed with their interpretation and production.

We like to see this ballet every couple of years. This was probably one of the BEST versions of the Nutcracker I've seen, from the orchestra to the dancing it was wonderful.

Well orchestrated. Dancers, costumes and staging were beautiful. Orchestra was outstanding. Had several acts which included 4 or 5 year olds -- too cute!

WOW! I was absolutely blown away by this production. It is by far the best I have seen. The drive to Long Beach was well worth it.

The production value was impressive. The pyrotechnics added a lot. The sets were detailed and beautiful. ...continued

A great performance and really impressive production quality. It was a great first Nutcracker introduction for my boyfriend and an overall great night. We had a wonderful holiday date night!

Great ballet. I took my 2.5 year old daughter who was completely engaged in the entire performance. Some surprises during the show keep you entertained. The 2:00 PM showing was good for kids.

Great show for the family. Just don't bring crying babies. They had great variety, costumes, lots of performers, and beautiful stages/scenes. Orchestra was great. Dancers were good, although some of them messed up here and there.

Long Beach Ballet's Nutcracker was very comprehensive, very well-performed, and very enjoyable. Well worth seeing. The Terrace Theater is a really nice venue as well and the seats we had (Main Orchestra) were excellent-- pretty much right in the...continued

My family I have made it a family tradition to go to the Nutcracker every year. With that being said, we put lots of effort into finding the best ballet in town.

I must say this Nutcracker is the best Nutcracker show we have ever seen. We have...continued

Overall a very good production. The guest artists they had this year where very weak.

Overall, a good production. The sugarplum fairy was great, and Clara gave a lovely performance. My main complaint would be audience behavior - constant chattering and noise all around.

The performance was incredible. When I was looking for a performance, I wanted something that had a live orchestra. I was not disappointed in the performance at all! The special effects were amazing. The dancers were all terrific (although I...continued

The play itself was great, funny. I truly enjoyed watching. It would have been better without the loud children and people walking in and out of the rows.
