Mathew Bourne's latest and last trio of Tchaikovsky's famous ballet's does not disappoint. From the costumes to the liberties he takes with the classic story, Bourne's breathes fresh air into a piece reminding us that dance and classical music...continued

The performance was absolutely wonderful! My friend & I sat in the last row of the Mezzanine. The seats were acceptable for the view. Will Goldstar ever offer good orchestra seats?

Fabulous loved it. A visual dessert! I loved the performances, the costuming, the sets a clever new twist on and old tale! Loved the use of the puppetry as well. The dancers agility was magnificent . Would highly recommend.

The show was amazing - the whole experience was perfect. No problems picking up tickets at will-call, and I used the red line to save on parking costs. Just a short walk from Civic Center station!

What a fantastic production. I've watched 100's of dance concerts-and rarely like ballet. Matthew Bourne is flagrant genius! Every role is unexpected. The sets and costumes take us into the realm of fantasy grounded in all kinds of unexpected...continued

as usual, the seats were good, but i was disappointed in this production, especially compared to Mathew Bournes ground breaking Swan Lake. The choreography seemed confusing and the dancing uneven, and the costumes and sets overdone.

I LOVED Swan Lake. Having seen 5 of Bourne's pieces, I found this new piece enchanting, but not as surprising and revelatory as his past work. But I had a good time.

This was a Beautiful, fabulous show! If I had been any closer, the music would have deafened me but had I been closer I would have been able to see the magnificent sets, costumes, make up and dancers better!

Matthew Bourne is, in my opinion, the greatest choreographers---ever. He takes classic, tradition, then adds brilliant movement, and costumes, with hard egdy, sexy, sometimes gay overtones. Except that the music is canned, every one of his...continued

I am not a big fan of ballet, and I absolutely loved this! It's a fresh twist with beautiful sets, costumes, and choreography. I definitely want to see Matthew Bourne's other works now!

It's beautifully executed... staging is creative, the dancing choreography is more contemporary than 'classic' (but, I liked that aspect), and takes quite a journey beyond the standard 'Sleeping Beauty.'

Nevertheless, I'm disappointed in the...continued

This is not your typical Sleeping Beauty. Read the story line before you watch the show and you will be able to follow better. Choreography was amazing, beautiful costumes and wonderful props. The dancing was incredible. Great show!

Just a truly amazing show. Could not have loved it more. You want to know what it looks like when the entire Ahmanson gives a show a standing ovation? See this.
