Loved it - though loved it more when originally performed by Joffrey in New York City some thirty years ago.
Was not too happy with my seat though.

I liked the first and second act. The third act "rite of spring" I did not like. Those Indian costumes totally ruined the show.

Excellent dancing. The Rite of Spring was interesting but a little dated. The real star of the evening was the last duet in After the Rain. Wonderful!

I was totally mermorized by the first half. The most beautiful fluid
wonderful experience. The last half while my husband loved it I was not

I'm so happy that we attended.

I saw this company perform this ballet in L.A. back in the 80s and was blown away by it. It was no less impressive this time. Not to be missed!

The performance was great. I think all involved did a wonderful job from the actual choreography, to the dancers precise, technical and fluid moves that stirred and roused the audience in stand-up applause! The last performance truly reflected...continued

Though our seats were in the rear orchestra, they were very close to center, which for ballet is a plus because of the symmetry. Thanks to our seat-assignment person!! We went to see "Rite of Spring", but equally loved the other two...continued

The Joffreey has improved and improved over the years. Their dancers are athletic and beautiful so just about whatever they do is a pleasure to watch. And they have the guts to perform new music and new choreography, so you know the show will be...continued

First ballet seemed a bit amateur and too long. Couldn't figure out why it was there. Wheeldon piece was lovely. "Rite" did not take me all the way back to the emotional level of first seeing it, but it was very well done. Very happy to have the...continued
