This is not the Russian Ballet Company with the extravagant sets & over the top production. However, if you want to enjoy a truly wonderful experience, with an exceptional cast, crew, and orchestra with a community touch, this IS the performance...continued

It was very good. Tons of talent. A different version than I'm used to with a strange ending. The dancers, orchestra and the scenery was worth going to see. As well as the beautiful Spreckels Theater. We had terrific seats. Thanks again...continued

We gave the tickets as presents and our friends loved it! They couldn't help but talk about how the entire show was elegant and the choir was angelic. The seats were perfect as well, a few rows behind the orchestra.

Great performance. Costumes, dancing, etc. Seats cut off some of the view in the mezzanine section, but everything else was great.

We really enjoyed the Ballet, but will get tickets more toward the middle of the theater so that we do not have partial views. Would recommend this to all.

I enjoyed this although it was not exactly what I expected. The seats were pretty good... second row back from the orchestra so no heads in our way but we were too close to be able to see the dancer's feet. I did not expect there to be so many...continued
