If coming from NJ, take NJ transit to NY Penn station (33rd st). Then just walk up one block on 7th Ave and jump on the #1 Subway (Van Cortland Ave/242 St) and it takes you straight to Lincoln Center (66th St) which was a 13 min ride. $2.75

Completely over the top entertainment...at one point there are 45 people on stage! Intricate costumes and sets, fabulous conveyances (a magic sailboat for the Lilac Fairy, and a spiderweb rickshaw for Carabosse) and wonderful dancing--and lot's...continued

My niece attended a ballet for the first time. She is a young adult who didn't think she would enjoy seeing a ballet, but she LOVED it. Our seats were perfect for viewing.

I am far from a ballet afficianado, having been to two performances. One of them was particularly boring yet this one was incredible, the music, costumes, the set, the whole shabang.....loved it, as did my wife.

Description

A cornerstone of the ballet repertory, this charming fairytale is also one of the grandest spectacles of classical dance. Martins’ streamlined story focuses the audience’s attention on sensational choreography, combined with Tschaikovsky’s glorious score, lavish sets and costumes, and a cast of fanciful characters.
