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.

Performance was very well done with some extra surprises that kept my kids entertained. Not thrilled with the seats we received, in the back row. As a red velvet member, I expected better.

The show was nice and the venue was beautiful. My complaint is actually against goldstar on this one. I bought my tickets WAY in advance (1 month before the show) and goldstar offers the tickets by seating sections NOT actual seats, which is...continued

A must see every year, done beautifully with a live orchestra, pyrotechnics and awesome visual stage design. I brought my mother-in-law for her first time and she loved it too. We had great seats that were in the middle a little more than...

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.
