The whole thing is only an hour so park across the street and not in the parking structure, where you have to pay $10..

The weather was cool. I wore jeans and a nice top. It was very warm inside the theater, almost too hot in the balcony section..

As always, it was a wonderful ballet. It is one of my favorites. The performance was spectacular with its beautiful scenes, settings, snowfall, lighting, costumes, dancing, etc. This is my second year attending. I loved it so much last year...continued

It was a lot of fun. The dancing was very well performed, and the guest dancers were fantastic. Great scenery and costumes.

Took my 10-year-old girl, husband and mother. All liked different parts. Costumes and sets were great. Performances by the children, enchanting. We hadn't seen it before. It helps to know the story. Not all boring ballet - there is comedy...continued
