How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
The Ballet was superb overall & the dancers were magnificent! It starts off a bit weird & drab - in an insane asylum (& in that scenario a little longer than I would like) - which took some acclimation - yet later became an integral asset to the story. I must admit that I was happy to see the colorfully costumed performers start. But again, the "grey inmates" were integral to the story. I was thrilled to be at this production - where a standing ovation took place at the end of the 1st act & at the end repeated cheering. The only disappointment was for the PREVIEW TALK - which as boring without the usual slideshow (technical problem)

Help others enjoy a great night out

Park at the MALL - good food choices, especially Nordstrom Cafe
We appreciated seeing people dressed nice.
Bring a snack/meal with you & enjoy it at the cafe seating indoors or out.
Maggiono's is great too. BUT so much food - buy 1 meal for 2 to share
