as usual, the seats were good, but i was disappointed in this production, especially compared to Mathew Bournes ground breaking Swan Lake. The choreography seemed confusing and the dancing uneven, and the costumes and sets overdone.

The show was amazing - the whole experience was perfect. No problems picking up tickets at will-call, and I used the red line to save on parking costs. Just a short walk from Civic Center station!

I LOVED Swan Lake. Having seen 5 of Bourne's pieces, I found this new piece enchanting, but not as surprising and revelatory as his past work. But I had a good time.

I am not a big fan of ballet, and I absolutely loved this! It's a fresh twist with beautiful sets, costumes, and choreography. I definitely want to see Matthew Bourne's other works now!

It's beautifully executed... staging is creative, the dancing choreography is more contemporary than 'classic' (but, I liked that aspect), and takes quite a journey... continued

This is not your typical Sleeping Beauty. Read the story line before you watch the show and you will be able to follow better. Choreography was amazing, beautiful costumes and wonderful props. The dancing was incredible. Great show!

The performance was absolutely wonderful! My friend & I sat in the last row of the Mezzanine. The seats were acceptable for the view. Will Goldstar ever offer good orchestra seats?
