The first piece was among the best jazz dance I have ever seen (over 70 years). The music was by Dave Brubeck featuring Paul Desmond on sax. The choreography was truly world class. The female dancers (on point) were excellent, as were four male...continued

I thought the first piece was boring, The woman could dance but the reading was boring. The second piece was also boring. The music was uninspiring. Charles Mc Pierson and his band were awesome! The whole show should have featured only them...continued

The performance was marvelous. Charley McPherson never disappoints & the dancers from the San Diego Ballet company were great. As a side note, the redecorated Lyceum Theater is a huge improvement. Five stars all around!

Charles McPherson Song of Songs III was amazing with all performers & Music.
Song of Songs II - loved it
Song of Songs I - wonderful artistic dance performance - got tired of only words that had little value for me in today's world. Too long.....

The highlight of the evening was the first act - a group of Indian dancers not even associated with the ballet company. The show was okay. We went last year, and it was much better.
