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.

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
