Was dissappointed. I went on Friday, night which in the past has always included a champagne reception for ALL who attended. This year, it was for "subscribers and donors only". That's tight. I brought 4 friends to the event who had never seen the Smuin, and part of the attraction of them coming was the reception. The would have enjoyed meeting some of the dancers.
Also "new" was the tacky playing of videos of the ballet company prior to the show starting. Ummmm, we've already paid to see the show, we're supporters. You don't need to show us the equivalent of a TV commercial in order to lure us back.
So, there were some nasty changes this time around.
Other than that, the dancing was terrific.
