Great Production! Artistic director is a genius. Great combination of Tchaikovsky and rock guitar. Choreographic depiction of the human soul is very unique and breathtaking.

We chose the Saturday matinee and the house was 3/4 full. It was a wonderful performance with beautiful choreography - with clever interweaving of both classical ballet and modern dance/ballet. The lead dancers were fabulous. Definitely a "must...continued

There was never a dull moment. I even took a...continued

This was a great experience! I had never been to a ballet before and the OC Performing Arts Center was a beautiful venue. The ballet itself was very entertaining, and a definitely modern take on the classic ballet "Eugene Onegin". Not for people...continued
