Sunday December 15, 2013 / 2:00pmLong Beach Ballet: The Nutcracker
Perimeter Orchestra/Perimeter Loge
How was your experience?
I was pleasantly surprised with this rendition of The Nutcracker! The sets were extremely elaborate and beautiful, as were the costumes as well. They had firework special effects in the first half, and a horse in the second (but only once for a few seconds as it walked across stage.. I wish they had MORE fireworks and more horse time!). The live orchestra was spectacular and really made the show for me. My only complaint is that there were far too many children in the performance.. they need to get rid of most of them and it would have been a far better show than it already was!
