Great seats for ballet (on the side but close in). Incredible performances. Especially the Raku piece! The visual projections and movable but simple sets added drama to an already dramatic and impressive work.

Amazing! I took my 7 year old daughter who is just beginning ballet and she was engaged for the whole performance. Raku was phenomenal as was Yuan Yuan Tan who was was not a medium for emotion, but was emotion itself. Indescribable. Go see this.

This was the best ballet I have been to. It was so good I wanted to take my boyfriend on the weekend, but that did not work out. I would see it again if given the opportunity.

The seats were terrific- a super deal at a fraction of the cost of the regular orchestra seat.
The highlight of the evening was a new piece called "Raku". Breathtaking lead dancer absolutely made the evening.
