Very enjoyable evening but I don't understand the point in paying a service fee since the event was free. Would have appreciated a little more information on the venue - seating arrangements, food services, etc.

No reason to pay Gold Star for a free event. No preferential seating only coupons for a free drink. Stage was small and difficult to see ballet. However a free event for families and a vechile to introduce children to ballet.

Had a very enjoyable evening watching the LA Ballet and listening to the Stravinsky music. It was a challenge finding location to be able to view the performance due to the great crowd in attendance.

The ballet from what I can see was fantastic. The event was more crowded than anticipated so you couldn't sit very close to see the performance. Since there were trees at the venue, if you didn't get a seat in the amphitheater, your view was...continued

Much too crowded. (Successful) The Chaya offer not immediately redeemable at the event itself (Should have been) and requires a second trip to downtown at another time - The offer was actually a bit deceptive.

Beautiful setting, but the event was supremely overcrowded. It was terribly hot outside too. People complained about others blocking their views. It should have been performed in a bigger area of the park

The show was fantastic loved the dancing and the costumes. The venue was a nice place I just didn't like the seating arrangement. It was a free event first come first serve. I'd rather pay for my own seat.

The show was very good, but the tickets were a rip-off. This event was free to everyone. So why did Goldstar rob me of $21 for this?
The information about the event was terrible. No where did it say this was a sit on the ground affair--bring...continued

Ballet under the stars evening was terrific although more disorganized than it should have been. Good weather and a terrific perfomance by the dancers

Interesting presentation: very informative. The dancing was good whenever we could see. I had to get up seven times to ask people to sit or leave as they were blocking the view of at least 50 people.
We arrived one hour early and the park was...continued

The atmosphere was wonderful as was the Ballet and of course a great warm evening.
I did not like the fact that most people there did not pay anything. Yes, I did receive a
voucher that can be used on a Sunday downtown for a frozen beer, but I do...continued

I paid for a free event. Got there 45 min in advance. Probably was a very nice ballet although I could not see a thing, there was no place to sit on the grass and we were kicked out of every place we tried to stand to watch by officials. ...continued

Endless goofy problems: # 1 was since I was out of town I bought it for my boyfriend who forgot to go! The one who complains about me forgetting. Then to do this ungrateful dog a favor I had beforehand tried to figure out where it would be so I...continued

Great location but crowded. Even though we arrived a little over an hour before the performance, we were just barely able to find a spot. The Los Angeles Ballet did a great job. The sound system was good too.

I'm pretty upset with Goldstar about this show. I paid $9 in handling fees for what were advertised as "Comp" tickets. When I arrived, the show was already free. We sat on the grass wherever we wanted and never needed the "comp" tickets. There was...continued

the ballet itself was beautiful. however, seating was very poor, partly due to me and my friends not arriving soon enough but also because from some sitting areas you could not see the full performance. maybe mark off certain areas next time so...continued
