The ballet troupe is really second rate, especially compared to the NYC ballets and other Russian ballets. But that’s not the real problem. Our seats were price level 2 - the best that you had. The seats were not to be believed. My seat was...continued

Orchestra seats were all on one level. Hard to get a good view of the stage. Old uncomfortable chairs as seating. NO orchestra but recorded music. Terrible! The performance was good but not spectacular neither were the costumes. A dated, kind of...continued

The worst experience ever! Boring show and, worse of all, the seats were literally on top of each other. Not to mention that the seats in front of me were practically on my lap. I go to a lot of show across price ranges and this was the worst.

The ballet itself was spectacular. The dancers were amazing. The performance and the stage set was incredible. However, the venue was horrible. It was run down, noisy and distracting. There were no announcements made regarding taking...continued

THE GREAT RUSSIAN BALLET TROOP IS EXCEPTIONAL. THE OFFERING WAS ENHANCED BY THE PROMISE OF HANDMADE COSTUMES. THEY WERE EXQUISITE. THE AESTHETICISM OF THE TROOP IS OFTEN BREATHTAKING. QUITE FABULOUS TO WITNESS!

The show was very good but I was appalled that I was seated behind a pillar. I was in Seat J1 and my view was blocked by a hugh pillar and a enormous screen or electrical box. and I could only to see half the stage. About 20+ of us were...continued

Best production of Nutcracker I have ever seen. Costuming and scenery were exceptional as were all the dancers. I quickly forgot the cramped seating from 1920's or so where the entire row had to move out to let someone leave. The chairs were so...continued

first of all, Hammerstein Ballroom desperately needs renovation. Sat in the balcony on uncomfortable too close together fold up chairs, and our view was blocked by two people sitting directly in front of us.
My husband wound up sitting on the...continued

This was a good production with many similarities to Nutcrackers seen in the past and some wonderful differences. The country variations, and the Arabian in particular, were stunning. However, the venue is NOT recommended by me for any theatre...continued

When I hear the words "Russian Ballet" there is just a certain expectation in my mind. Tons of dancers, highly professional, very coordinated, simply marvelous! And as a ballet lover I was very much looking forward to this show. Sadly it didn't...continued

The ballet itself was pretty good. Good story and very entertaining. No live orchestra. The seating however is terrible!!!!!!! Apparently there are such thing as bad seats. Orchestra area is NOT elevated so if you're on the floor, good luck....continued

The Ballet was fantastic. Just what I expected from The Moscow Ballet and more. If I had to rate the show by itself, I would have given it Excellent with an exclamation mark. But I evaluate my TOTAL experience, and it was awful. I paid over $80...continued

The performance was fine but the venue dingy and lacking and the seats were physically uncomfortable. I would never attend another performance at the Hammerstein Ballroom.

The show was very good. However, the constant flashing of I-pads, I-phones and cameras with strong flashes decreased the enjoyment of the show. Several people complained and went to usher who said they could not do anything
