Lots of places nearby Segerstrom Center to eat, from pricey to moderate. We ate at Thasos, a moderately priced Greek restaurant, in the Bed, Bath and Beyond shopping center diagonal to Segerstrom Center. Pretty good food, and can leave your car there to save $10 parking fee. Also Japanese, Indian, Cuban or specialty Hamburger restaurants in the same center.

The dancing was excellent, as expected from Eifman Ballet. The story's new twist actually kept things fresh and engaging. Low marks only for the set considering the beauty of the costumes.

This was an amazing ballet.....great story, great dancing, great costumes...Boris Eifman is brilliant, and I can't wait to see more of his ballets. The Tier 3 tickets were great for my young daughter since she had enough room around us to dance...continued

The Eifman Ballet is always worth the wait. The imaginative choreography of Eifman's contemporary productions and the exceptional talent of the performers is a must see.

Description

For its sixth visit to Segerstrom Center for the Arts, the Eifman Ballet of St. Petersburg will give the Southern California premiere of the company’s riveting Don Quixote. Artistic Director and Choreographer Boris Eifman has added new twists and inventive takes to Don Quixote, which is based on an episode from Cervantes’ novel Don Quixote de la Mancha. Using classical ballet infused with the spirit of contemporary choreography, Eifman creates compellingly original dance dramas. The Los Angeles Times calls his creations “dynamic, theatrical, visionary works that delve into characters’ lives in the most exciting, probing, titillating, and wondrous ways.”
