How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
A spectacularly heart-wrenching take on a Christmas classic that, to me, offered so much more emotional depth and drama than the ballet. It was wonderful. And despite the tears, the simple childish happiness conveyed through the amazing performance of Clara and her clownish toy friends (and the comical rats) made me laugh out loud on more than one occasion! Wonderful for all ages (although, if I was a child, the penultimate scene with the red-eyed rats might give me nightmares)!
