How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
A nice night out -- though I thought the corps had better dancers than the Russian headliners, at least the guy who danced Siegfried. The prima ballerina was very good. I was sad that no one acknowledged the excellent orchestra, which was hidden behind a scrim. I prefer being able to see the musicians or at least the conductor. The production value was good. Our seats were awful. This was my husband's first ballet and I wanted him to at least see what was going on. We moved to better unoccupied seats in the same section. He enjoyed it....but our experience was almost spoiled by the chaos at Will Call before the show.

Help others enjoy a great night out

Info
Parking at this place is very confusing. Best place to park is directly ACROSS the plaza from the theater (NOT diagonally) in the high rise office building. Fewer crowds and no disgusting urine-soaked hallways, same price to park
