How was your experience?
The dancers were phenomenal. The costumes were beautiful.BUT, the seats on the first floor were extremely uncomfortable. They were cheap dining room chairs instead of plush movie theater seats. The chairs were so close together that everyone's shoulders were touching their neighbor's shoulders. Also the chairs were placed exactly behind each other, so that the person sitting directly in front of you, blocked your view of the stage. Everyone seemed to have to keep leaning their neck from side to side to see the performance. It was ridiculous. The performance started 30 minutes late; not very professional. This Russian version was not true to the story of the Nutcracker. It only showed segments of the story. Not well done.
