Sunday December 8, 2013 / 3:00pmGreat Russian Nutcracker
Price Level 3 (Balcony)
How was your experience?
The interpretation was very loose. This made the story very hard to follow. There were also many gratuitous dance numbers that added nothing to the show or story line. Don't get me wrong, some of yhe dance numbers were fab. When the nutcracker danced by himself, after the girl danced by herself,after they had danced together close to the end of the show was a bit redic. Clearly for the dancers to show boat and not to enhance the story line. The mouse king role was too understated and it was unclear that the young girl was dreaming.
