We went to see the Nutcracker by the Birmingham Royal Ballet. It really was a super performance, with a great orchestra. Just about every seat had a good view, so you would enjoy it even in the restricted view seats.
As a venue, the hall itself is amazing. It certainly doesn’t lack for character. I’m definitely looking to see what is on next time I am in London. The only real drawback is the number of rude people who insist on photography with their phones. At least the venue people made an announcement at the intermission.
