It's obvious to see why Diane Vishneva is rated so highly as a Ballet Dancer. She brought along with her, absolutely top-notch performers, who, when given their turn in the spotlight, shown brightly at every turn.

Although I was glad to have...continued

This performance was composed of presentations of three choreographers involving multiple dancers and featuring Diana Vishneva. All of the performances were excellently done. One of them would better be described as visual effects, including the...continued

Not the greatest of seats. Too far to the right to see the whole stage. But overall an enjoyable evening of dance. Ms Vishneva is a National Treasure.

Extraordinary talent, though much of the choreography did not take advantage of it. More Cirque du Soleil-like than I expected it would be.

The segment of the program performed before the first imtermission lacked bling (Pzazz), and I believe this was created by the most celebrated choreographer! I expected better. I wonder if they were totally unaware that dancers in all white...continued

Live music accompanied Diana V. The first short ballet was sung in
German & was very grating. Least favorite of the 3 pieces; however danced well as were the others.

The second piece was wonderful & the third also very good. I felt blessed...continued

I guess I'm just not a ballet fan. The second Act was very entertaining, and although the dancing was beautiful, I was bored by Acts 1 & 3.

I thought the program was too much of the same thing, though the work called F.L.O.W. was very imaginative. I felt Vishneva was not shown off well--that her versatility was ignored and her athletic ability stressed. A very challenging program,...continued

Diana Vishneva is a fantastic ballerina. She and all the group of dancers were great. The F.L.O.W choreography was the only one I liked.

If you like discordant music, then Act I and 3 will be up your alley. I found the music so obnoxious that it took away from the dancer's movements.

However, Act 2 is the opposite. Amazing performances. Overall--c+

Stunning. The second act was one of the most clever stage performances I have seen.

The first piece was really wierd. The next two used an interesting sense of physics with the dance that I enjoyed. I'm still glad that I attended.

Enjoyed the dancing, but not the music selections.
Our seats were good, in the 3rd tier, but I was upset when later, OCPAC offered discount tickets for orchestra for $30, and $20 and $10 for the other tiers. Those were much less that what I was...continued

Missed the 1st act but we arrived in time to see the 2nd act which was phenomenal! The 3rd act was a little sloppy. Maybe it's because i don't understand contemporary dance but overall I really enjoyed the experience.
