Wonderful time. Had dinner at the Cafe in the building before the show, loved the experience. We had seats in the Premier balcony with great sightlines. Pricing was affordable. Really looking forward to the next ballet!

I had the last row at the balcony and did not expect my seats to be that far behind.

We sat in the dress circle balcony and had a wonderful view! The value of half price seats is phenomenal! We have tried everything from Box seats to standing room for $10 and found the 1/2 price balcony to be the best value! Hooray for...continued

Giselle is one of the most ethereal classical ballets. It was performed with the technical precision and emotional rigor that such a timeless piece deserves. The talk before the show truly enhanced my understanding and appreciation of a ballet I...continued

At first glance, the seats looked to be too high up but as the performance unfolded we realized that the view was magnificent add it gave us the chance to not only see the ballet from in front but also to survey the formations a little bit better....continued

Fabulous program--we loved it. One person of our trio got sick at the last minute and we were unable to sell the ticket, a disappointment. However the roll-down screens for those of us in the upper balcony were useless--unlike when used at the...continued

Great performance and the seats weren't bad at all, plus there is a screen if you want to see even closer

The dog unexpededly jumping then other onstage was hilarious! The dancers handled it all with grace and the ballet was beautiful, but this moment made it memorable.

For the price the seats were way better that I expected! We had a great evening. Maria Kotchetkova was our "Giselle" and she was/is perfect for the part. A beautiful production! Bravo SFB!

I loved the production, even tho the ticket was nosebleed.
Read the synopsis of the ballet before it starts so that you know the story.
There are a LOT of steps to climb to the balcony section, but think I saw restrooms on all levels.

In general, I enjoyed the performance. However, the 2nd half was a bit drawn out.

The ballet was great. The will call ticket experience was horrible. The line for will call was outside and around the corner. We got there 20 minutes before curtain and didn't get to our seats in time so we had to go upstairs to the top of the...continued

Beautiful set, the dancers were great, costumes good, and I love the venue. Helgi has done a great job with the dancing just wish the choreography could be more interesting. And seats were a little too high up in the balcony
