The show was really good. Loved the music and the performers were excellent. BUT....the seats were sooooo close together with
absolutely NO LEG ROOM. This put me in a very compromising position, since I'm a tall person. Needles to say, it was...continued

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

We'd never seen this production before. It was fun seeing the orchestra in front of the stage (rather than in a pit). The dancing was surprisingly good. Definitely recommended!

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.

It was cute. Not super professional though. Felt more like a ballet school performance with a few standout leads. The main dancers were were great, but a lot of the group dances were not synchronized (and not just the kids as you would expect)...continued

The Spreckels Theater is an ideal setting for performing the magical Nutcracker Suite Ballet. The scale of the venue is just the right size---big enough for grand stage setting, and yet small enough to feel intimate. The orchestra is topnotch...continued

City Ballet's Nutcracker has been a warm holiday tradition for our family in recent years. It is a beautiful version that lives up to the challenge of such a cozy and intimate setting. The balcony singer(s) didn't cut it for me, though, during The...continued
