I love the National Ballet of Canada's performance of the Nutcracker! Always magical, and always takes me back to my visit to Russia. I have been waiting years to take my granddaughter, and this was the year....six years old and she said that the WHOLE performance was her favourite, she loved the costumes and that the night was magical. She... More

This ia a tradition for many families around this time of year. The production is always stunning and the music is wonderfully comforting and familiar. Kathy P. mentions that there isn't a bad seat in the house, and she is absolutely right. The best part of the production is watching the children who attend as they become mesmerized with the...

Beautifully done! We sat in the grand ring and had a breathtaking few! Lots of families with children at the matinee performance. Some of the other ballet-goers were pretty snotty and rude though. Cute little gift shop, but expensive. Typical T.O prices for cocktails.

My daughter and I saw this ballet on December 23, 2014 at 5:30 p.m. We were seated in the Grand Ring. The seats were excellent. We have seen the performance many times before, and it never gets stale. The orchestra was superb. The dancing was great, with Sonia Rodrigues dancing as the Sugar Plum Fairy. She is so elegant and... More

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,...

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

If you like ballet, the National Ballet of Canada offers some of the finest ballet on the planet! The venue of The Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts is elegant and every seat has a fabulous view.
