How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Loved the performance (the best NUTCRACKER ever!) but hated the way people in the front row behaved. It was a mistake to buy discounted tickets for my family as all those who got these tickets were given places in the several back rows and the majority were families with little kids who bought these discounted tickets. So we had a young family with 3 little kids right in front of us. Needless to say the little kids got bored by ballet pretty soon and were VERY disturbing. On top of this, they bought popcorn at the intermission and continued eating it throughout the second part of the ballet. Who does that at the ballet? Shame on them. I asked the mom if she wanted to move to the empty back rows with the kids but she refused. Get a babysitter, or rent and watch ballet at home with your kids, but have enough conscience not to bring young kids to the full-length ballet performance!!!
