Lawrence D. Devoe, MD, March 2015

While traditionalists may cringe at the thought of watching a beloved classic subjected to contemporary freestyle dance moves, there is much to enjoy here with dancers who possess the sheer athleticism to handle Tchouda’s often-complex choreography. The production is well presented and there is enough of the Tchaikovsky original to convey the essence of this ballet. Young viewers will get a particular boost out of seeing “street” routines incorporated in what has been the province of an ancient art form. Hopefully, we will have the opportunity to see more revisionist work from this dance company and its very talented choreographer. © 2015 Read complete review

…A Nutcracker’s LPCM 2.0 track delivers both the scintillating flavors of Tchaikovsky’s score and Yvan Talbot’s more modern work with clarity and precision. Fidelity is excellent…

Technical merits here are good to excellent, and for the enterprising dance aficionado, A Nutcracker comes recommended. © 2014 Read complete review
