Great show! It would appear that they put most of their students on stage and very effectively so. I am in awe of the great teaching that happens at this particular ballet school. The kids are in top form (from a great number of 3 and 4...continued

It was just O.K. - I was disappointed that the Nutcracker remained a doll throughout the entire performance. He usually comes to life & participates in the dream, as all of the other characters & animals do. Only the main "prince" was priceless...continued

A little different from other Nutcrackers in that it didn't completely tell the story but rather featured the entire cast in various dances. It was more like a recital but all levels of the school danced for an enthusiastic (mom, dad, friends )...continued

I went with my wife to see this wonderful performance. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the performance, as it was evident that the cast members spent many, many hours in rehearsals and truly created a fabulous masterpiece, as even the...continued

What a beautiful performance! It has become one of my favorite Nutcracker Ballet shows. I try to go to three different performances in the Los Angeles area. I love that each year I can see something special added to their choreography. This year,...continued

If I had known this was a dance studio production, I would have loved it. The kids did a great job, and the sets and costumes were beautiful. The problem was that I was under the impression this was a professional production. Nothing in the...continued

Probably the best Nutcracker you'll ever see produced by a ballet school. Beatiful back drops and costumes. Amazingly talented young dancers. Mr Daukayev as Drosselmeyer himself and SF principal Maria Kochetkova guest stars as sugar plum - such...continued

I paid $49 for 2 tickets that were orchestra/balcony instead of the lowest $12 per ticket -- I wanted the best seats possible. When we got to the theater, the tickets we were given were in the mid balcony with a face price of $17. This did not...continued

Whole production impressive The Clara was stunning. The Prince was regal and flew like a bird through the air. The Sugar Plum Fairy sublime, The Snow Queen luminescent.

The story was entirely rewritten to accommodate many small children who must now be laboring under the mistaken impression that ballet consists of running across the stage and jumping up and down. Dreadful!

I guess there will always be trolls putting negativity out in the world. Don't listen to them! The Nutcracker Ballet is a family tradition of ours for 9 years in a row and we have seen many of them. This is one of the best. Period. The...continued
