They changed Patina Restaurant in the courtyard. They made it smaller and changed to a price fixed menu. We arrived 1 1/2 hrs. early and couldn't get in. The taco bar was closed. We couldn't get into another restaurant and ended up getting a sandwich from the fast food kiosk.

Rather disappointing. Do not feel that we got our money's worth. Ran only about an hour and rather than a single dramatical story, it consisted of individual vinettes of which several were repetitious in pattern.

Description

Don’t miss a very special Chinese New Year and Valentine’s Day performance as the Beijing Dance Academy—hailed as China’s Juilliard School in dance —comes to the U.S. to premiere _The Butterfly Lovers. _

Set to China’s most famous violin concerto, the legend of the Butterfly Lovers is China’s Romeo & Juliet, complete with intrigue, love and tragedy. The evening also includes a selection of award-winning pieces by some of China’s up and coming choreographers.
