MOSCOW BALLET'S GREAT RUSSIAN NUTCRACKER
Mary from Atlanta, Georgia
Wonderful, the dancing was lovely. The emphasis was the dance, and it had a lovely Russian flavor. I recommend it highly. We had fabulous seats.

AMAZING DANCING BY THE PROS AND LOCAL CHILDREN
From the moment the dancers took the stage, the whole audience was engaged. The pros were amazing! The highlight of my night though, was seeing my daughter and her friends on stage. The local children put in so much hard work and looked amazing up there dancing with all the professional dancers. This is a show you will not want to miss. If it comes to your city, you must see this show.

SI LOVED EVERY MINUTE
The Russian Dancers were stunning and amazing. The costumes were beautiful and all was so graceful. In the variations, the abilities and strength were magnified. Comic appeal seen in the Russian variation and the doll and jester as well. Yes, some of the young children were not "professional level", but they were sweet. Many of the locals were very good. I will definitely see it again. This production is for all ages. Many children were there.

BETTER THEN LAST YEAR
We go every year as part of our ‘holyday spirit’ tradition. We’ve seen the nutcracker performed in many countries, so we’re pretty spoiled. This year in Vancouver, the nutcracker did not fail to capture the overall spirit of the holidays, but still lacked the ‘wow’ factor (apart from the Arabian dance - which is amazing!) It would truly make all the difference to use an orchestra instead of downloaded music over the speakers. Also- if you’re sitting in the mezzanine, row 30, seat 25 at Q E Theatre, be prepared to listen to some awesome radio chat between security in the back room. Thanks guys.

I’ve seen a few ballets in my time and I was quite disappointed to not have a live orchestra, children who weren’t ready to dance on stage, and excellent dancers mixed in with mediocre performances by some. I honestly expected it to be of a much higher calibre and the cost for this ticket was overpriced given what was delivered. There were clear mistakes made, timing off with dancers, and the choreography, which was excellent at times, seemed to lack imagination at times - the child dancers - especially the very young ones - were a distraction and took away from me enjoying the performers. No standing ovations, for good reason. I honestly thought this ballet company would have it together. Never buying a ticket for them again, was a waste of money unfortunately.

What a let down. We were shocked at the mediocre performances of the ballet company dancers. The kids were adorable and their mistakes were to be expected and actually cute. But the professionals were inconsistent and sloppy. We expected perfection since it’s the Moscow Ballet.
