We parked at Horton Plaza and enjoyed a wonderful lunch at Nordstrom's Cafe where we got our parking ticket validated for 3 hrs. It is a short walk to Spreckel's theater from there.

For performances at Spreckels Theater I park for free in the Horton garage which offedrs 3 free hiours. But don't exceed 3 hours because you will ripped off - $10 worth.

We enjoyed it. The ballet dancers were very graceful. The theater was only filled 30% so we were able to move around since our seats squeaked. You can park in Horton plaza since they offer 3 hours free validation but there's usually street parking...continued

This was the best ballet performance we've seen in our 24 years of living in San Diego. Very well staged and professional in every respect.
