Great costumes, Slow, Delightful

See it if You want an easy, light-hearted ballet with some songs you'll know.

Don't see it if You want a ballet that has a strong story and impressive staging. This one, whilst enjoyable, was very simple.

"The highlight of this production remains the corps de ballet. It's hard to watch the snowflakes and not feel a pound of anxiety with all those dancers trying to stay in unison, watch each other, their spacing, listen to the music, remain serene. "
