“For the love of ballet”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

If you love ballet then you can't miss seeing the National Ballet of Canada. Especially around Christmas time you have to go and see the Nutcracker! If you don't love the ballet, go anyway!

“Enjoyable experience”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

We saw the Nutcracker over the holidays and truly enjoyed the performance. We knew someone that was performing in the show, although a very small bit it was worth seeing her and the rest of the cast perform.

“Very good ballet. Toronto should be proud of such a wonderful art in the city.”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

It is a wonderful ballet, second only to Russia's ballet in Moscow and St. Petersburg. We watched the Nutcracker last fall in the great venue and it was wonderful. The theatre, the Four Seasons, was a wonderful place to have it. Probably nicer than Russia.

“One of the top companies”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

The National Ballet is a great cultural institution. It is old school ballet, like American Ballet Theater, the Royal, and the Bolshoi, though like at least the first two of these it also does "modern" pieces. The quality is very high, and some of the productions rank among the best in the world.
