The theater was the highlight, not the show. Excellent view from our seats, comfortable and roomy, sound was great. The show started off great with the dancers but got bogged down with poor historical and/or supposedly humorous skits.

We were given tickets by a friend to see a jazz night of music by Leslie Odom Jr- from Hamilton- he was fabulous as was the view of Central Park from our seats. It was spectacular.

Beautiful music and dance but a very slow show loaded with propaganda. A couple introduced each song which dragged out the performance. I do not speak Italian but when I go to the opera they do not give a summary of each song before it is sung.

Stunning. Great seats, impeccable musicians, beautiful theater! It exceeded my expectations. Loved every second. Glad I brought my binoculars to the balcony....it was great to see facial expressions and details up close!

One of the most beautiful centers for ballet and other art performances! Is worth walking around after the show to take a look around the center!
