The show was good, but not great. We enjoyed it. The Asian Dance was great. Ironically, the Russian dance was a little weak. Music was good but the conductor had a bit of a mad Russian scientist look about him that was a bit distracting.
Due to the nearly 40 minutes of advertising from ~7:30-8:10 for a movie scheduled to start at 7:30, I am unlikely to go to another Fathom Event. I certainly didn't care to see a marketing video by the President of the company telling me all about how great the NCM Media engineers are. If they are so great, I shouldn't even know they are there. A 5 minute infomercial during 35-40 minutes of NCM Media Ads, Broadway coming soon ads, etc. was excessive.
My So-So rating is more for the wasted 35-40 minutes watching ads and a Nutcracker Quiz four separate times. If not for that, I'd rate it a "Go."

My girls and I looked forward to this for weeks. We made a 45 minute drive to the closest location and arrived early to make sure we got good seats. Finally over 10 minutes after the advertised start time the show began. The picture was crisp, bright and beautiful. Unfortunately it was also completely silent! Movie techs worked for sometime and then determined there was something wrong with the satellite feed and the problem could not be fixed. The ticket price was refunded, but that did not make up for the time and gas lost. Most was heartbreaking was my daughters' disappointment.

The production was fine, but nothing special. The 3D aspect was a complete waste of effort and did nothing to enhance the film.
