How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
This performance was very disappointing and certainly not worth the $84 for my seat + $13 service charge. For starters, where was the orchestra? They used a recording of Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker Suite instead of real musicians. For the price of that ticket, I would expect a live performance. Second, although the dancing was very good indeed, I felt at times that the choreography did not keep pace with the music. I felt it was very amateurish. The costumes were on the skimpy and cheap side. Again, I expected more from the Moscow Great Russian ballet and the price I was charged. I would not recommend this ballet company nor would I see it again.
