It was nice to be able to see a variety of scenes from the classic ballets. The costumes were beautiful, but the sets were very simple. The ballerinas were gorgeous and inspiring.

Lovely -- company much improved since the last time I saw them. Too bad they did not attract a larger audience -- but GoldStar makes the tickets affordable. A really great service

We had great seats. The stage and costumes were beautiful. Great ballet group. The only problem we had was there was a couple behind us who talked too much. .

As it was my first time at the ballet, I didn't know what to expect. I found the show to be very enjoyable. Our seats were quite good for the price, plus the music and dancers seemed well-rehearsed.

I have NEVER been to a ballet and I was impressed. I liked the venue as we were in tier 2 and had a great view. Tier 3 probably would have been fine, too. The show consisted of mini-acts of famous performances like The Nutcracker and Swan Lake....continued
