It was very enjoyable. I usually like ballet to be danced classically, but this was a nice variation.

This dance is a must see! The costumes are so georgous and the set is beautiful. The puppet of Aurora was so ingenious. We loved every minute of it and would see it again if it comes back.

This production has something for everyone - the hard core dance aficionado, young dance student or those who love theater/dance with a little edge. The puppet baby Aurora was so lifelike - I hoped she would come out and take a bow with the cast...continued

Seats were great. I have seasons tickets in the 1st tier. .. these were much better and about 33% less. To save on parking, use the valet across the street at the Watergate - only $10. Take time before or after the show to check out the Ken...continued

Run to see anything by Matthew Bourne! He is so creative and original, mixing ballet and more contemporary dance style, and producing a new story of Sleeping Beauty that holds your attention every moment. The idea of using a large marionette to...continued
