I would have enjoyed the program more without the gratuitous and infuriating audience "participation": applause before the end of a solo, and shouting more suited to a stadium than a theater. Is this unique to Orange County audiences, I wonder? ...continued

I thought the performance was wonderful. The program was quite unique. I'm not sure how to interpret the choreography but I enjoyed it none the less. I will definitely go again.

Wonderful show. My fiancee a former ballet student, Loved it. More security needed to remove the inconsiderate people that cannot put their iphones down to respect and enjoy the performance. Too many "I'm the most important person in the world"...continued

I loved the event! It was such a thrill to see the exquisite Bolshoi trained dancers. Although I prefer the classical ballet, this program was very interesting and enjoyable.

Absolutely magnificent! Truly stunning artistry. I appreciated that the show had something for everyone in that there were more traditional pieces as well as some very modern pieces. HIGHLY recommend the show to all audiences.

Beautiful performance! It was a mix of both the classical ballet style and more modern, "hip" dancing. Very fun to watch. Another review complained about the "gratuitous" clapping, etc. but I didn't find it that bad.

The " Reflections " ballet was enjoyable and well performed, which we expected of dancers who were trained by the Bolshoi. I especially liked Act II, which had short exhibitions by each of the dancers.

I took my four year old to see her first non-Nutcracker ballet, and we both loved every second of it. She stayed awake until the end, and could not stop talking about it the next day. The music, especially the piano, was played wonderfully. I...continued

While the dancers were well trained, there was absolutely no connection or cohesiveness in the program between one piece and another. also, it was extremely long and I left after the second act after 2 hours.

Our seats were better than expected, lower part of 3rd tier, and well worth the price.

The dancers were beautiful, but some clearly out of their element dancing modern ballet when they should stick to their expertise of classical.
A little...continued

The Bolshoi dancers were incredible -- so strong and graceful, and very well trained. They brought a lot to the dances, and were much more impressive than most modern dancers I've seen.

I didn't enjoy most of the choregraphy, except the...continued
