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.

Quotes & Highlights

“Although immensely complex, the work is gripping at first sight, and reveals the quality of a company whose every member shares in the overwhelming total effect.” —The Independent

Description

You’ll see why with their ballet, Nijinksy, which celebrates the life and legend of one of the most exceptional artists of all time.

Vaslav Nijinsky, the “God of the Dance,” set a new standard technically as well as expressively, and achieved unparalleled fame and popularity.

As a choreographer, he created ballets that both mesmerized and shocked audiences.

Ultimately, though, his story was one of tragedy, as his genius gave way to schizophrenia, and his world disintegrated into madness.

Dance magazine

hails Nijinsky as “the most ambitious project in the ballet world in recent years.”

Hamburg’s Orange County Performing Arts Center debut will mark a rare U.S. appearance and West Coast premiere for the company.
