I hope to see The South Coast Ballet perform again. Next year, if we attend The Nutcracker again, we'll probably leave at intermission.

I was very disappointed that there was no live orchestra. In past years this ballet company has used a real orchestra. I don't go to live performances to hear canned music.

The South Bay Ballet's dancers did a great job performing. The Nutcracker was beautifully done and it was delightful. People were mesmerized by the enchanting dancers.

I haven't seen this company's interpretation in some years. Even though the dancers were pretty good, I was disappointed by some of the parts that were deleted. Specifically the tree growing from the ground and most especially the live orchestra.
