WONDERFUL BALLET, PUT A SMILE ON MY FACE.
Go see the Washington Ballet's Nutcracker at the Warnear Theatre. The warner Theatre is a perfect venue. The little dancers were cute, and they danced really well. The adult dancers were stunning. The costumes were lovely and the scenery was intricate and dazzling. The story took a few modern twists. Thank you, Julie Kent and Washington Ballet Dancers for a great evening.

WE ADORE THIS TWB’S NUTCRACKER!
Our family has been going to TWB’s Nutcracker for 10 years and absolutely adore it. It’s a unique, imaginative spin on the traditional Nutcracker that manages to captivate us year after year. The professional dancers are superb, the kids bring so much joy to the show, and the theater is beautiful. A much-loved family tradition.

THIS IS NOT A PROFESSIONAL BALLET. I thought for $85 I was seeing a professional company. You guys: these are children. Granted they are very, very, talented kids and the production value and the costumes were incredible …that’s why I was so confused? The cast is composed of mostly children, there’s maybe four professional ballerinas? It’s a school or something. I am truly flabbergasted. I read the website up and down, did my research, saw the reviews. I was so looking forward to this but perhaps ignorance is bliss and the average person doesn’t the know the difference between a professional ballerina and an adolescent learning the art of ballet? Also a US Congress woman was featured in it? Maybe for a PR stunt? The Nutcracker was George Washington?? I get it, D.C. is the Nation’s Capital, but this is CLASSICAL Russian ballet. Why plug US historical propaganda? Why?? The sugarplum fairies were wearing beaver hats you guys. Like this is a joke. I hate to be the debbie downer because everyone else seemed to just love it, so please, don’t let this review scare you away. Maybe I am the dumb one here, but if you too think for $85 - $100 you’re seeing a professional performce: YOU ARE NOT. My next question: if little Sarah is still in the seventh grade, where are these ticket sales going??? On another note, here is a list of wonderful classical nutcracker performances I have seen that I would highly recommend: Joffrey Ballet Ballet West San Francisco Ballet New York City Ballet If that’s out of your budget, my hometown studio in Heber, Utah ALSO does a wonderful rendition of The Nutcracker with a similar or greater technical skill level and tickets are $5 plus you get a hotdog.
