The place is great and the shows even better

The Ellie Caulkins and the Buell are both beautiful venues to see ballets, operas or shows. The talent they bring in is excellent. Great evening out!

This ballet company is incredibly talented. We were fortunate enough to see them perform Alice and Wonderland. I would see it again in a heart beat!

Nutcracker is a must during the holidays! Although they offer other ballets throughout the year. My wife and daughter saw Alice in Wonderland as well, and they loved it. Be courteous and be seated on time.

We try to go see the Colorado we tried to go see the Colorado ballet every year at least a couple times. We most definitely go to see their performance of The Nutcracker during the holidays. Being a ballet nut, this is one of the best ballets in our nation. The Colorado ballet along with the Colorado Symphony always puts... More

So many folks see Nutcracker each year but stop at that. It was great to see Alice in Wonderland sell out. It had great dancing, live music, captivating stage props, impressive choreography, and fun costumes.

Didn't know what to expect from the Alice in Wonderland Ballet. We all enjoyed it tremendously. The modern score was just the right amount of new and old. The various scenes with catepillar to butterfly, croquet with hedgehogs and flamingos, and the dance of the dodo bird and eagle were our favorites. The corps and the Italian guest dancer seemed...

Fun for all, especially those who have never been to the ballet before. Need to have some familiarity with the story & characters of Alice in Wonderland. Costume design was incredible, especially the caterpillar. Music was synced with the performance perfectly. Attended the matinee performance, only downside was the a/c was not working properly and theater was very stuffy and... More

So much fun! Fabulous costumes, sets, lighting, choreography, and music. The young academy dancers cast as baby flamingos, piglets, and daisies stole the show. Colorado Ballet is fortunate that Sharon Wehner chose Colorado for her ballet career - a perfect little Alice!
