Loved it! I really wanted to see the Nutcracker, and I am so happy I did. Made it an evening with my Mom, who is now in her late 80's. Wonderful to see it with her, as, of course, she introduced me to it as a child. First of all, the "plot"...continued

The orchestra was excellent. I was expecting a more professional production from the dance group. The first act was Jr. Theater, the couple next to me left at intermission, we were concidering it also; but act 2 was excellent and made up for it.

I found the evening to be entertaining. This production was very different from previous versions. It was a more serene ballet compared to some preformances that were more active and vibrant.
