The Nutcracker is an annual event for us and one day we will get to NYC to see it live but this was the next best thing. The camera work was great, the sound was perfect, the intermission interviews were awesome. We'll definitely do it again!

It really felt like I was in the audience watching the live stage but with a better vantage point because it gave me close ups of the dancers faces and movements. Great production. I enjoyed Kelly Ripa's interviews with the dancers during the intermission too.

The NYC Ballet production was wonderful! My six year old granddaughter was transfixed. Orchestra played beautifully. The behind the scenes interviews were interesting and offered an insight unknown to me before. Ruth C

The concept of a live performance being seen in a theater appealed to me especially after hearing from friends who had had the same experience with opera and raved about it. You are closer to the action than in most theaters and the prospect of interviews before and at intermission is intriguing if only it hadn't been perky little Kelly Ripa doing the interviewing. An interview should be about the person being interviewed. Enough said. The dancers were superb and this is a great opportunity to see the best. At the price, I'm not sure I'd do it again.

I just saw this at the Regal Oaks 24 last night, and it was amazing! The children were wonderful, the costuming outstanding and the Ballet Company incomparable! Never have two hours flown by so quickly, and Kelly Ripa's interviews were so interesting and informative...she was great as the host! Keep quality events like this coming! I think this and "Memphis" are my two favorite events so far! Thank you! Carole
