Amazing show! I'm always so blown away by the talent at the ballet. The costumes and sets were great, the score was very well suited to the show, and the dancing was brilliant. The seating is also quite good, I think most of the seats...More

Beautifully done! We sat in the grand ring and had a breathtaking few! Lots of families with children at the matinee performance. Some of the other ballet-goers were pretty snotty and rude though. Cute little gift shop, but expensive. Typical T.O prices for cocktails.
