One of the best known saxophonists in the world, David Sanborn blends jazz, pop, rock and R&B into a smooth-as-silk sound that no other sax player has quite managed to copy. The career of this multiple Grammy winner was launched in 1975 by his (aptly-titled) debut album, Taking Off, and it hasn't come down since, spanning more than two dozen other albums. Established as both a soloist and a collaborator with the likes of Bowie, the Stones and Clapton, Sanborn now brings his "sweet-tart alto sound" (The New York Times) to Carpenter Performing Arts Center in Long Beachfor an impassioned performance.

Very enjoyable. The Carpenter Center is a fantastic location, easy access and parking and a wonderful staff! Picking up the tickets couldn't have been easier, and the reminders from Goldstar were very helpful.
The ballet was excellent! A wonderful blend of talented dancing with a fun and energetic performance, including fun props, that my daughter (6 yrs) was really able to enjoy. Just when she was getting "squirmy" the performance would include something fun and interesting again (like her favorite part the "human alphabet").
So in summary... great location, great facility, terrific seats, and a wonderful performance!! A truly terrific afternoon! Thank you!!

“The New York Theatre Ballet…turned out to be one of those shows that are so good they seem worth the price of the entire series of five attractions.” —Sacramento Bee
This new one-hour rollicking romp takes the whole family on an antic-filled journey — simple enough for small children, sophisticated enough for the most discerning adult. Inspired by classic nursery rhymes, this tongue-in-cheek, madcap ballet features such beloved characters as Jack and Jill, Miss Muffet, Jack Sprat and his plump wife, Old King Cole, and The Three Blind Mice.
Set design is by Derek Stenborg and costumes are by Sylvia Taalsohn Nolan, the Metropolitan Opera’s resident costume designer. The music, an original work created for this production, is composed by Vladimir Shinov.
Created by Keith Michael, choreographer of NYTB’s delightful, high-spirited Alice-in-Wonderland Follies.
