Try to not get close-to-aisle seats: sitting on heels & miss portion of stage action. As in any large theater & seats not close: take opera glasses.

I was told that the best parking is in the Adobe building, just across the street - $5 for the event (twice what we paid).

Description

Ballet San Jose presents The Toreador, a ballet in two acts by the legendary August Bournonville with new and re-adapted choreography by Flemming Flindt. Ballet San Jose is the only ballet company in the world which has this ballet in its repertory and will present it with full orchestra. All the costumes and scenery were constructed by Denmark’s Royal Opera House. The story revolves around the beautiful daughter of a Spanish innkeeper and her love for a brave and handsome toreador, whom she cannot bear to see in danger.
