Under the tent - its just magical as the performers give their all in an absolutely amazing performance. Definitely no boring bits in this fabulous production. Would definitely recommend a visit and may go again - enjoyed it so much.

Had a great time watching Swan Lake last night. The presentation was by one of the myriad of Russian ballet companies. Very entertaining with good sets and costumes. Booking through the Merrigong website was simple with ample opportunity to select seats of choice.

Hi most seats have good Vision, we usually try for the centre, avoid the front three rows if possible. Enjoy :)
