Absolutely, positively LOVED this performance!!!! First, the theater at the North Shore Center is phenomenal. Even though these were discounted tickets on Goldstar, we had EXCELLENT seats about 10 rows from the stage. The ballerinas were amazing and having only seen the Joffrey's version of the Nutcracker, I would HIGHLY recommend Salt Creek. The only thing missing was a live orchestra. Those dancers are so excellent that they should dance to an orchestra/live music. They were amazing.
