I have been a patron of the National Ballet for many years and love it. The performances are top-notch and the costumes and dancers are exquisite. I love the Four Seasons as a venue from the pre-show and intermission bar service to the comfortable seats. Not a bad seat in the house. Very enjoyable I encourage people to take advantage... More

We recently attended the National Ballet of Canada presentation of Romeo and Juliet at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Los Angeles. We were very impressed by the quality of the dancing, the acting, the scenery and the overall performance. Bravo

Our hotel was a block from the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts so we walked there to see the National Ballet of Canada perform "Cinderella." It was a lovely production with nice sets and the performers were excellent, especially the two wicked step-sisters and the prince. The lead was played by Xiao Nan Yu, not the featured star,... More

I'm not the biggest fan of the opera, but sometimes it's nice to exercise the more sophisticated side of your brain. Full disclosure here, a friend of ours is in the orchestra for the National Ballet, so I'm a bit biased. Never got "freebie" tickets though, so there's no incentive or obligation to provide positive feedback. So now you know... More

The performance of the Nutcracker by the National Ballet of Canada was absolutely amazing. It was the first time I have been to a live ballet performance and it was truly worth every penny! I highly recommend for any one to go see it. The Four Seasons Centre where the performance is held was very easy to get to and... More

First time to see ballet and chose the Nutcracker at the Four Seasons centre. We bought rush tickets at the box office on the day of the performance. Good seats at the 2nd last row of the orchestra for $35 with unobstructed view. (normally rush tickets get a seat at the side of the theatre with only partial view of... More

Went to an evening performance of the Nutcracker Ballet with my daughters, my sister and her daughter. I had never been to the ballet before and was completely impressed. The 4 Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts is so easy to get to. We took the Go Train and subway. From the subway you don't even have to go outside... More

The Nutcracker at the 4 seasons. I'm an art director myself and was surprised to see talent and costumes yet no substance and visual storyline that corresponded with the music. Kids were laughing at the lambs, sheep, fox, bear.......not in the original story line. The theatre is crowded and anybody that suffers vertigo should be warmed to be careful because... More
