The 2 stars is for the fact that up to (more than) 1/2 HOUR INTO the performance, people were still ushered in and disrupted our focus on the ballet. Very disappointed... continued

The performance lacked any energy though it was technically good; this version is different and the added mascots took away from the dancing. I came expecting a top notch... continued

Very disappointing!!! The staging was actually drab! Except for 2 or 3 of the male dancers, the dancing was uninspired.

Too many steps to climb to a mezzanine which is really a balcony. There was no live music but a playback.The dancers were good. But the puppets on the back were distracting and I did not like them. The lines to the will call were way too long.

Superior dancing and costumes! I would have liked to have seen more props. It was disappointing not to see the lady with the children emerging from her huge skirt. But the entire performance was wonderful, and we thoroughly enjoyed it!
