Seats were in great location. Performance was enjoyable. The City Ballet troupe has developed nicely. Only a few miscues along the way. Great to see local folks in it.

A beautiful experience. Such fun to see so many parents and small children enjoying a classic way to celebrate the season. Dancing, costumes, sets all pleasing. Wondered why the ending was changed. Clara did not wake up from her dream.

The Spreckles theater is such a small venue that you can't have a bad seat. It was a lovely afternoon.

I've been to many ballets this one was by far the most boring one... Great seats but we were falling asleep. Drink prices are astronomical as expected at a ballet in NY or Boston..

It was a smaller venue than we're use to but it was nice. However I could not see very well because of the people directly in front of me. The seats should slope up more so the front rows are lower than the rows in back or maybe the stage should...continued
