"My daughter was in ballet at the school for many years, and we always enjoyed coming to see The Nutcracker. However, this was a notch above. Or five. The costumes were absolutely beautiful, as were the sets and props, and the orchestra took it to a whole new level. I would pay more to have a live orchestra there. Well done. An amazing job."
