The Nutcracker

By hleesarokin
It is difficult to believe that someone (particularly the Bolshoi) could make this traditional piece so dark and dreary. And I mean physically dark. I kept waiting for the stage and Christmas tree...

The Best I've seen in over 25 years

I was totally entranced and kept gasping with astonishment at the talent of these dancers. It was wonderful to see the play as it was choreographed...instead of dance teacher's interpretation. The...

Bolshoi Nutcracker

By fan dancer
Because I am a balletomane ( I Because I am a balletomane ( I <3 Ballet, more specifically: NYC Ballet) I could not pass up the chance to see the world renowned Bolshoi Ballet perform The Nutcracker in a simulcast from Moscow. This time of year is Nutcracker Season and I was not disappointed! The music was exquisite, the sets and costumes delightful and the dancers were wonderful. The only mild complaint I have is the lighting was a bit dark. I was also disappointed that the (movie theatre) audience was fairly sparse- please do more advertising Fandango! The Bolshoi came to Saratoga Performing Arts Center this summer and packed the house for all of their performances. There are plenty of people who would have attended had they known about this show. I hope you will inform all the dance studios, the Dance Alliance, National Museum of Dance etc. in the area about the upcoming Swan Lake and Ivan the Terrible simulcasts. Thank you so much for all the wonderful simulcasts you have shown and will show in the future!...

Disappointed

I have seen many productions of The Nutcracker over the decades, but this one left me cold. The music, of course, is fabulous, and the dancing superb, but the visuals of this production had no magic...
