Price Level 3 - Floor (Rows N-T)
How was your experience?
The ballet itself was mediocre at best. I had high expectations for the Moscow ballet since I have known Russians to be spectacular dancers but in this show I was let down. The animated costumes from the background dancers (the bears, unicorn, bull) hailed more applause and cheers from the audience more than the ballet dancers themselves. Aside from that, the Wiltern was a bad venue since in many areas you have all level seating, which made it hard to see. People were eating, talking and coming in at all times during the show which was quite disruptive and rude. That would NEVER be tolerated at the Dorothy. In the end, the show was fun for kids, but not for the average ballet fan.
