Was hoping for more of a Scottish flavor. Second half was heavy ponderous German opera (Mahler).. Fell asleep. Not worth even the discounted price.

My rating 3.5

Great seats. Great venue. Terrible acoustics. The score was often scratchy. It was reminiscent of the days of mixed tapes when you'd try to capture your favorite song on cassette tape while it was playing on the radio. It was...continued

This ballet was very modern and inventive. I loved the choreography - it was playful and also had serene beauty. Our seats were very close to a balcony railing which partially blocked a corner of the stage. We were able to move over one seat...continued

The Scottish Ballet performance was a special treat! This was my first exposure to modern ballet and it was fabulous. If you appreciate the art of dance - all forms of dance - you'll enjoy this creative and artistic choreography. The second...continued

Excellent classical technique by the company dancing modern pieces. It was refreshing to see something new instead of the same old warhorses that ballet normally presents.

had no expectations since this company has not performed here in 25 years. A young group, but very nice dancers and the pieces performed were very interesting and fun to see.

sublime - the Mahler piece was expertly choreographed blending traditional steps with modern movements.

Very interesting company with terrific dancers. Both of the pieces were great. I had never seen the McMillan piece before and it was really creative. I wish there had been live music. The Mozart was a poor recording.

I usually like modern ballet but this really wasn't my cup of tea. The first piece was OK (the person sat next to me however loved it). The second was much better. Choice of Choreographer aside I was a little disappointed with some of the male...continued

Well, I need to say that this was the first opera I have seen in my life. I personally enjoy a wide range of music and dance, but know relatively little about opera.

Now having said that, I will say that the Scottish Ballet absolutely...continued
