How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
The overall production for its value made this a very lovely Nutcracker. I found the dancing by the company to be terrific, even if there were some miscues. The Russian dancer did a magnificent job. I think the kid has a bright future if he chooses to continue in dance. The set and production design was very nice and better than some larger Nutcracker productions I've seen over the years. This particular set of dancers were wonderful and I wish them the best of luck. Also, there is just one thing I'd like to point out in attending live theater, leave your cell phone in your pocket/purse. I was seated next to someone who constantly had the urge to photograph the performers. Etiquette 101, do not be the distraction. With all that said, if you have an opportunity to see the Marat Daukayev Ballet Theatre perform, I suggest you do so.
