I would have enjoyed the program more without the gratuitous and infuriating audience "participation": applause before the end of a solo, and shouting more suited to a stadium than a theater. Is this unique to Orange County audiences, I wonder? The program itself was fascinating, as the dancers' techniques and the choreography were outstanding.
Quotes & Highlights
“Reflections, so named because it endeavors to express the thoughts and feelings of a new cohort of Russian ballerinas, promises a mash-up of great allure for balletomanes. It matches seven ballerinas — all graduates of the Bolshoi Ballet Academy in their mid-20s who perform at superstar level, five in Russia, the rest in the West — with a tempting roster of hip choreographers”—Los Angeles Times
