I wore a silk suit and my husband wore a dress jacket and pants. People are dressing rather sloppy for the theater lately. It is a special place and I enjoy seeing the folks dressed up. It makes it seem more special..

Mitsua Market on Paularino, 1.5 blocks east of Bristol on the South side of the 405 has a great food court with all kinds of Japanese Food available. The market has a great "to-go" sushi fare and in the early evening most of the sushi, made that afternoon, is marked down for a quick sale. I especially like the noodle shop closest to the check out stands of the Market, and their spicy Pork Noodles are terrific. More expensive and the best in the food court is the noodle shop in the middle of the court, about 3 stalls to the right of the first noodle shop, to the right of it, is a stall that has a great tempura, teriyaki combo, that I've enjoyed for years. Mitsua Market has wonderful desserts with shops specializing in frozen mochi and pastries, as well as fare only found in Japan. In fact, going to Mitsua is to be transported to an authentic Japanese SuperMarket and Food Court.

Description

The renowned American Ballet Theatre will perform an all-new production of the Tchaikovsky classic, The Sleeping Beauty. The Sleeping Beauty is a three-act ballet staged by Kevin McKenzie, former ABT ballerina Gelsey Kirkland and Michael Chernov after choreography by Marius Petipa. The Sleeping Beauty’s West Coast premiere at The Center will follow its world premiere in New York City on June 1. Set to the famous score by Peter Ilyitch Tchaikovsky, American Ballet Theatre’s new production brings together the Tony® Award-winning team of Tony Walton and Willa Kim, with lighting designed by Richard Pilbrow and Dawn Chiang.

_The Sleeping Beauty _brings to life the timeless fairy tale of the beautiful Princess Aurora, the evil sorceress Carabosse, a curse which brings a century of sleep and the awakening kiss by a handsome prince. There is a wealth of dazzling dance in the new production which will be a delight for all to enjoy.

The Center’s International Dance Series has been made possible by the generous support of Audrey Steele Burnand. The Center applauds its 2006-2007 dance season sponsors: Jane and Jim Driscoll; The Segerstrom Foundation Endowment for Great Performances and the Los Angeles Times. The Center also thanks Sonnet Technologies. Mercedes Benz is the Presenting Sponsor of the Orange County Performing Arts Center’s 2007-2008 Season.
