Disney On Ice presents 100 Years of Magic

Playing United Center (Jan. 27 – Feb. 7)

Disney on Ice Presents: 100 Years of Magic #DisneyOnIce #Chicago

Last week I took the girls to see Disney on Ice Presents 100 Years of Magic at the Allstate Arena. We missed last year's show due to our busy schedules and the girls were adamant that we did not miss this year's show!  Disney on Ice Presents 100 Years of Magic was the perfect show because it really does have something for everyone. Disney on Ice Presents 100 Years of Magic highlights favorite Disney movies over the years.

The show itself has many favorites of my girls. Mickey and Minnie Mouse and friends come out and introduce each next performance. Pinocchio came out first and ever since my girls keep asking to watch this movie on DVD. Nemo and Dory were next on the ice and even a surprise visit from some cute turtle. Belle came out on the ice afterwards with a few of her friends and the Beast even turned into a Prince. Then every Disney princess made a jaunt around the ice with her prince. Next up was a quick rendition of Frozen. My daughters were so excited and were hoping for this all night long. I wonder if everyone could hear them singing from where we were sitting! This section of Disney on Ice was fantastic!

After intermission Aladdin and the Genie made some fun turns around the ice and even some back flips. My girls have added Aladdin to their DVD viewing time as well. Up next was Woody, Jessie and Buzz made an appearance with a group of army buddies. Mulan and the Dragon were out next and once again, my daughters were so happy as this is their 2nd favorite Disney movie. The dragon is gorgeous!A Disney on Ice performance would not be complete with out Timon and Pumba! The finale was fantastic, as usual!

We all had a great time watching our favorite martial-arts loving panda and the Furious Five in Kung Fu Panda and Kung Fu Panda 2. It was a bitterly cold and snowy day in Chicago and we had the perfect #PandaParty with noodles, tea and panda cupcakes. We watched both movies and can't wait for the upcoming release of DreamWorks Animation's Kung Fu Panda 3.

Moscow Ballet's The Great Russian Nutcracker

GREAT RUSSIAN NUTCRACKER Rosemont Theatre | Review

Moscow Ballet performs the Great Russian Nutcracker, Romeo and Juliet, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake and more classic Russian ballets in over 70 cities annually across North America!

GREAT RUSSIAN NUTCRACKER Rosemont Theatre | Review

My Thoughts: I have been going to theater production for the better part of 20 years and I love almost everything I see. I have seen small productions, large productions, intimate productions, ballets, plays and loads of Shakespeare and symphonies. I think as a Chicago reviewer of theater, I am a bit spoiled. In order to give a fair review, I believe that companies supply reviewers with good seats.

I was so excited to take my youngest daughter to see the Great Russian Nutcracker and she was so excited to see the Nutcracker ballet. She dressed up in her fanciest dress, high heels and even had me curl her hair. We picked up our seats and found them in the very last row of the theater in the highest balcony. We were so very disappointed. I understand the tickets were free, but there were so many better, empty seats, in the theater that I was so surprised that they placed me in the very last row. I don't think this was an ideal seat to give a fair review of the Nutcracker.

That being said, what we could see when the stage was well lite was lovely. The dancers were in perfect unison with the music. The music was beautiful! We couldn't see any details of the costumes, but I imagine they were also beautiful. Once the lighting on the stage was dimmed based on the story line, it was almost impossible to see the dancers. I wish I would have known and I could have brought along some binoculars for my daughter and I like the ladies in the entire row in front of us.

Tickets are on sale now for Moscow Ballet’s celebrated Great Russian Nutcracker on most cities on the 2015 North American tour! Families love Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker! It's the ultimate holiday tradition and creates memories for a lifetime.

For a Full Schedule of Event Dates/Venues and Times please visit http://www.nutcracker (DOT) com/buy-tickets

I would recommend getting much better seats than we were provided.
