Exquiste costumes, beautiful music, and exceptional dancers all in the historic Auditorium Theater! What is there not to love? A great ballet for all ages no matter what your experience with the art form has been. There is something for everyone...continued

It was a lovely son is 9 and while he enjoyed most of it, it was just a bit too long for him. Seats were good but there were plenty of empty seats closer to the stage. Overall though, it was great! thanks.

I thought the Ballet Dancers were very good, inspite of the fact that there were a few key points in the choreography that was sadly lacking. But all in all, I'm glad I went.
