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.

MAGNIFICANT

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.

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.

MOSCOW BALLET'S GREAT RUSSIAN NUTCRACKER

Great performance.

4.0 star rating Sun from Vancouver, British Columbia

GREAT SHOW

It was a very first time I saw ballet performance from Russia last year. I was so excited to see them. I love it enough to go again for the second round this year. I got the pre-sales tickets on the second days once its open to public. So I am able to get two front row seats at a reasonable price. I am very excited to look forward seeing them again in November. Although it was a great experience, it did not fully meet my expectation. The performance was lack of high level technical jumping and turnings. Having said that, the costumes were beautiful. It definitely worth to see it for yourself. At last, the Queen Elizabeth Theater has a poor air circulations system. I got an headache in the second half of the show due to the bad air and a full house attendance.

DISAPPOINTING

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.

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.
