The First Tier was quite good -- Although not as close as when I sit in Orchestra I could see the full stage. This ballet (Don Quixote) was dramatic and funny with lots of action happening in the background among minor characters. The full...continued

The dancing was superb. We had Tier 2 seats and had an incredible view of the ensemble dancing. ABT is one of the best dance groups in the world. Even the costumes were great. The music was wonderful - it would have a great event with just the...continued

First of all, the seat from Goldstar was excellent - I didn't know where it would be, other than in the orchestra, but it turned out to be in the second row! And the performance was spectacular. The world-class dancers of ABT were in top form for...continued

Absolutelly magnificent...!!!

The only thing I would suggest is to modify the outfits of the Gipsies, because they looked like Natives from a Western film. The red-yellow pants, bare torsos and head bands are a no-no....!!! :)

It was very pretty but too long. The two 20 minute intermissions just dragged it out more.

The ballet was a major disappointment. The two principals were just okay, but nothing special. The corps de ballet was mediocre at best – imprecision and lack of synchronization in every movement. The principals’ costumes were extremely...continued

This was the best ballet I have ever been to. Better than when I saw the Bolshoi ballet. The part that stood out was the final act, Dream. The whole troupe was great but the three principles involved were exquisite.

The ballet dancing was very good but the music was changed to fit the ballet instead of using the original music from the story and the storyline was also changed such that it was hard to follow unless you read along with the program. I was...continued
