The performance didn't begin until 8:55 p.m., not 8 p.m. The intro was all in Spanish. The theater should be shut down and remodeled or torn down. Outdoor parking lot lights are on the walls and blinding, they were kept on for about 10 min. when the ballet began,the speakers and sound system are AWFUL. The intermission was about 10-15 min. too long and all the lights were turned off so you couldn't find your way back to your seat. Guests used their cell phones for light. The sound for the second act was so loud the kids put their hands over their ears. No lights were put on when the ballet was over, so you couldn't see where you were going. The ballet was just so, so and was spoiled by the entire experience.
