Our first Nutcracker show. Such high caliber dancing, costumes and sets. The shows were sold out, which says something in itself!

the dancing was not that great. First half not so good, second half better. The best part of the show was the Ron Paily band - which should not be the case. Too long a ballet - should be max 90 minutes.

The music by the Ron Paley Jazz band was absolutely fantastic. The dancers did an awesome job and I'm sure they enjoyed dancing to the live jazz music. The evening flew by, and before we know it, it was over.
