This ballet was so beautiful. This was the first time seeing a ballet that is not the Nutcracker and we were absolutely mesmerized by the level of dance, the sets, and the music. We could have watched these dancers for another 2 hours.

"The Sleeping Beauty" features Lauren Lovette as the Princess Aurora, and I'd gladly see the show several more times if my budget permitted. Lovette was magnificent in every way: elegant, graceful, powerful, and charming. She alone is worth the price of admission. All the dancing,...More

The premier of Sufjan Stevens' collaboration with NYCB of Principia was phenomenal. The costumes, the choreography, the simplicity of the set, and the music presented a terrific show. Absolutely worth the expense. The theater is gracious and welcoming.More

A fabulous ballet. The costumes were outstanding and the dancers were exquisite. The first half of the ballet was a bit slow (we had 7 and 5 year old girls with us), but the second half of the ballet was wonderful.
