Am a great fan of Bourne and his company. Loved his Swan Lake and was dazzled by Sleeping Beauty before the intermission. Unfortunately, after that, I felt that the work was not as interesting and in fact, I felt it was trite and repetitive with...continued

It was an amazing production! Beautiful dancing, costumes and sets. but I think I was given the absolute worst seat in the house! Very last row, against the wall in the balcony. Very hard to see looking to the left because the wall was there....continued

So unbelievably fabulous! Worth the (discounted) price of admission for the conveyor belt and fog entrance of the fantastic fairies alone.

Ticket purchase was easy, tickets at will-call as ordered. The seats were further back than I expected but the theater is small enough and well-designed so we had a good & unencumbered view. And the show was SPECTACULAR!!!

As I emailed you las nights before the performance, I got the last two seats in the mezzanine.... Row P seats 26 & 27..... with a partially obstructed view of the stage. These seats were located next to the light booth.... I had the same exact...continued

I liked the show but did not think it was suitable for young (under 12 years) children. The family I sat beside had two young daughters and their comment at intermission was "it's scarey". I think it showed too much of the "dark side". Also,...continued

Incredible, my family loved it very much. Absolutely adored the puppet, couldn't get enough! We will definitely be following Mathew Bourn and be on the lookout for his next great show. I recommend this show to everyone. Our seats were...continued

Mathew Bourne creates a theatrical event that is difficult to match.

The ballet was spectacular - I wish I could have seen it more clearly.. I was bitterly disappointed in Goldstar who ripped me off completely. I paid for lower mezzanine tickets between C and P. I was given a ticket on the upper mezzanine in row...continued

The production values for this show were super - sets, lighting, costumes. The dancers were beautiful and there were a few elements in the choreography that made for lovely moments, but as a whole, I wasn't wow'd as much as I wanted to be. One...continued

This ballet was poorly done in my opinion. The music stopped off in weird places, it was confusing, the incorporation of fairies and vampires was not explained at all. Didn't fall in love with the main character at all. None of the approaches were...continued

This rendition of "Sleeping Beauty" was beautifully choreographed, staged, and inspired. The primary fairy in this story was a fairy godfather. The hero got much more play than Beauty. I loved the twist, however, Bourne's version reduced Beauty to...continued
