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.Pippin dining • Nov 14 2014 star this tip starred

Quotes & Highlights
“Brilliant dancers seem to be the norm in the Ballet Nacional de Cuba, which regularly produces international stars.” —The New York Times
Free Preview Talks conducted by dance critic, columnist and writer Gary Smith will be held one hour prior to the performances on June 15, 16, 18 and 19. On June 17 at 6 p.m., a special encore presentation of a lecture-demonstration, Inside Dance, will be presented to give patrons the opportunity to learn more about the transformation of dance technique and style from classical to contemporary.
Formed in 1948 by Alicia Alonso, the National Ballet of Cuba occupies a prominent place in Hispanic and international ballet culture. The tiny island of Cuba has produced one of the foremost schools of ballet, which has trained all of the company’s dancers. It is extraordinary that Alonso produced this quality in only sixty-two years. As National Ballet of Cuba’s artistic director for more than six decades, Alonso has honed the company’s style to perfection, which has helped produce many of the world’s top dancers.
