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.

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!

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

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.

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!
