This was the best ballet I have seen in many many years. The dancers were amazing, the stage sets were creatively spectacular , the costumes very colorful and the music was great. I would definitely see it again. I hope they come back to SF.

This was a terrific performance. I was well-attended but I was surprised it wasn't a packed performance and I thought I was lucky to get a deal on it on Goldstar.

Ballet was delightful. Entirely in the Western ballet tradition, nothing of Korean music or dance except perhaps a bit of music at beginning of third act. Wonderfully staged and performed--especially evocative for shipboard and undersea...continued

Got a great deal for Balcony seats ($12) and was upgraded to Orchestra on arrival!! The actual ballet was like a Korean soap opera come to life! I thought the sets were beautiful/colorful! Definitely recommend!
