I thought ballet, and that too a children's story, was not for me! How wrong I was. It's a superb show with the finest dancers who bring to life a story. It's highly recommended not just for kids but give up disbelief for a little bit...continued

A glorious ballet...with an equally top-notch orchestra. And Goldstar really came through for my family. I had requested tickets which would be accessible for my 85-year-old aunt, and our seats were perfect! Third row, on an aisle!
