Thank God I am not a perfectionist or I would have missed a great opportunity to enjoy something
that was done very well. I took my niece who is
recovering from breast cancer and it was so wonderful for her, too. My family has been going to the Fox for performances since 1949. My older sister told me about her dates to the fox back in 1949. (I was 8 rs. old). Classy sister, huh?
It was a wonderful experience for me and the whole thing was so wonderful!

Spectacular! Stupendous! Amazing!
By Dancer and a Critic from The Royal Ballet School, London, England on 10/7/2008
Amazing Dancing, Audience Loved It, Beautiful Performance, Brilliant Acting, Engaging Plot, Fantastic Music, Great Costumes, Great Lighting/Effects, Great Set Design
This performance is the most spectacular event I've seen from all over the world! I love Ballet Hawaii's Nutcracker! Every year it gets especially good! No performance I've ever seen is this beautiful and graceful and lively! Take my word for it and go buy yourself a ticket! You won't regret it!

Great Set Design
Amateurish, Boring Plot, Poorly Acted
As a first-time ballet goer, I was expecting a good ballet performance. I was quite disappointed. The dance lacks coordination, and the acting when stage is full is not well organized. I was surprised to find that in comparison, Broadway shows in New York that require no "dance to the music" have much superior choreography. Based on other reviewers' comments, my thinking appears to be not alone.
