Glad I joined Red Velvet club--had very good seats which made a huge difference. Loved the show.....great to see a Black Count Albrecht and an Asian Giselle....a truly multicultural and gorgeous performance. Makes me love DC all the more!

Very clean dance performances from leads and corps de ballet. Nice, but simple sets. Pre-recorded music, no orchestra.

Seats were nothing short of incredible. Dead center orchestra, no obstructions. My husband could not believe it. Thought for sure seats would be terrible. Production was fabulous.

We couldn't see one third of the stage on the right-hand side. What we saw of the performance was beautiful.

Dancer advertised did not perform. It was like ordering filet mignon and getting chopped liver. What a rip-off, Washington Ballet Theater.

The ballet was just beautiful. Brought my two teenage girls, only one of whom dances, and they both loved it.

Goldstar got us good seats for half the box office price...I wanted to see Giselle because it is a classic and the TWB dancers that performed the night we went are the best dancers in the company. We were well rewarded with bravo-worthy...continued

It was a great night! Seats were really good value: back of the orchestra section, but right in the middle. Dancing was beautiful and well choreographed.

Thanks Gold Star We had a great time at the ballet. We went to will call, showed ID and got tickets. The seats were great, not to mention the price. Can't wait for next event. Will definitely become a member on the next purchase.

The show was fantastic and the seat that I got from Goldstar has been great! Happen to seat next to another 2 young ladies who happen to get their tickets from Goldstar, and we are all thrilled at the good deal and had a great experience!
