How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
This dance was promoted as inspired by The Arabian Nights and the character of Scheherazade, which, for us, established expectations of something exotic and colorful. Instead we saw something more a la Dubai nightclub and minimalist. There were a few spectacular scenes that realized the promise but most of the choreography was repetitive.
