Mathew Bourne's latest and last trio of Tchaikovsky's famous ballet's does not disappoint. From the costumes to the liberties he takes with the classic story, Bourne's breathes fresh air into a piece reminding us that dance and classical music...continued

The show was amazing - the whole experience was perfect. No problems picking up tickets at will-call, and I used the red line to save on parking costs. Just a short walk from Civic Center station!

The performance was absolutely wonderful! My friend & I sat in the last row of the Mezzanine. The seats were acceptable for the view. Will Goldstar ever offer good orchestra seats?

as usual, the seats were good, but i was disappointed in this production, especially compared to Mathew Bournes ground breaking Swan Lake. The choreography seemed confusing and the dancing uneven, and the costumes and sets overdone.

I LOVED Swan Lake. Having seen 5 of Bourne's pieces, I found this new piece enchanting, but not as surprising and revelatory as his past work. But I had a good time.

This was a Beautiful, fabulous show! If I had been any closer, the music would have deafened me but had I been closer I would have been able to see the magnificent sets, costumes, make up and dancers better!

Matthew Bourne is, in my opinion, the greatest choreographers---ever. He takes classic, tradition, then adds brilliant movement, and costumes, with hard egdy, sexy, sometimes gay overtones. Except that the music is canned, every one of his...continued

Just a truly amazing show. Could not have loved it more. You want to know what it looks like when the entire Ahmanson gives a show a standing ovation? See this.

The costumes where great, the dancers were good, but the first half of the story line was a little hard to follow. Loved the musical choices, would recommend it, just with the warning that the first part of the story is a little unclear. The gold...continued

Great theatrical dance show. He carries the main themes of the original ballet but with a twist and a lot of humour. Wonderful costumes, sets and lighting. His dancers are beautiful.

Wow! Bourne is truly a visionary. Made me sad to have missed his Swan Lake. His interpretation was far better than ABT's a couple of years ago.

Amazing. I'm a big Michael Bourne fan, and it was great to see his latest reinterpretation of a classic. As a special treat, Mr. Bourne himself was there and addressed the audience briefly before the curtain. Highly recommend this to any Bourne...continued
