This was the best ballet I have seen in many many years. The dancers were amazing, the stage sets were creatively spectacular , the costumes very colorful and the music was great. I would definitely see it again. I hope they come back to SF.

In the very grand tradition of the great, full-length, story ballets, the Universal Ballet of Korea wowed San Francisco with the Company’s flagship work, “Shim Chung - The Blindman’s Daughter.” To the immediacy of emotional and visual...continued

Got a great deal for Balcony seats ($12) and was upgraded to Orchestra on arrival!! The actual ballet was like a Korean soap opera come to life! I thought the sets were beautiful/colorful! Definitely recommend!
