What a wonderful experience. We really enjoyed the ballet. The sets were tremendous, orchestra terrific and the ballet dancers were outstanding. I always look forward to the Long Beach "Nutcracker".

Great, I wasn't expecting it, I have seen the Nutcracker before, but this show passed all my expectations, the scenery, the outfits, the variety of dances, the little ones, so cute, was delightful.

I have been to many different performances of The Nutcracker, and this one was probably the best. The best part, and the reason we decided to attend this production was because there was a LIVE orchestra. The orchestra live makes it...continued

Top notch Nutcracker -- expertly casted and executed beautifully with great sets. Best of all, full music by a live orchestra -- absolutely wonderful! Enchanted me and my family from beginning to end. Highly recommended for all ages.

Positive: The Ballet company gave a spectacular performance. Music, choreography and special effects were amazing.

It was magical. Everything about the production was beyond my wildest imagination. Having the live orchestra was amazing. I took my 85 year old mother and it felt like it was a once in a lifetime experience for her.

The ballet was quite wonderful. The range of ages of the performers was amazing! The orchestra mikes were awful. The sound from the pit was tinny and thin and I know the players were very good.

Great performance, nice venue, easy parking. The only downside was the rude audience.
