The orchestra did a great job but the actual ballet was a bit mediocre. Some of the performances lacked emotion and came off a bit dull. I didn't get the feel of... continued

Wonderful show. We had very good seats. The live orchestra was very good, and the dancers, some professional, some from local ballet schools, did a great job. I'm making plans for next year.

orchestra and costumes were great. We arrived 45 minutes early and were still late getting into the theatre because the will call process was so slow.
The show and seats were great. My 3 1/2 year old loved it. SHe sat through the entire show.

Overall enjoyed the performance. The orchestra was great but we were disappointed with the dancers. Not quite as polished as in the past. The theater should not let in late comers after the performance begins. Very distracting.

The event was fine. The loge area was not, uncomfortably warm.
