We prefer a more classical ballet. We were seated O 11, 12 which was slightly to the right. The way their props were position it blocked the view so you often could not see the dancers.

What a creative and interesting take on a classic story! The costumes and set were incredibly refreshing and complex and in their simplicity. The ballet took the love story between the Father and his first wife to an elevated level, which then...continued

Modern ballet, charming in its own quirky way. We enjoyed the costumes and scenery, although some of the scenes were a bit repetitive. Great fun for the money.

This could've been 4 stars, because the stage performances were very good. The problem I had is the lack of credit or even acknowledgement for the excellent musicians. I came to this ballet in large part to hear a live performance of Prokofiev's...continued
