  • My friend Jaimie and I loved the show! From the beautiful building and polite staff to the wonderful musicians and ballet dancers. The evening was very relaxing and a pleasure to experience! Would recommend anyone to go enjoy the show! Thank you!!
  • It was an amazing experience with my 12 year old daughter. Since you enter is magical, the candles, the Centro Asturiano historical theater and then the show is spectacular.
  • It was really a unique experience. Very intimate setting and the musicians and dancers were amazing.
  • Absolutely amazing performance and set list. My girlfriend is much more cultured than I am with ballet but this event gave us both a wonderful evening. Great performances from the musicians and dancers alike. Thoroughly enjoyed from beginning to end.
  • Everything was well done. Very beautiful
  • Amazing my wife and I loved it.
  • This was such an intimate and amazing experience. In a world of crowded concerts and noise, this was a beautiful escape.
  • Outstanding performances!
  • More quartet than ballet, but was very lovely!
  • Unbelievably talented people
  • Freaking amazing ! Hate it only an hour but so worth going experience something different 🖤
  • It would have been better if the ballet dancers had a spotlight on them. Seats were very uncomfortable. It was still a lovely evening I enjoyed it
  • The performance was GREAT! Only 4 stars due to drinks being allowed inside & all of the walking around of the spectators.
  • A singular amber spotlight would have made a significant difference.
  • Fantastic musical and dance performance, the seating could use a little upkeep.
