“The dancing of the two young principals, Iohna Loots and Ricardo Cervera as Clara and her enchanted Nutcracker, is characterful and enchanting...this is a generally conventional production [of Nutcracker] which sets off the dancers well...Kirchschlager is a very believable shock-haired boy, and brings Hansel’s boredom and mischief to life with great panache...The delicious profile of the music as delivered is picked up by the orchestra under a most responsive conductor.”
