How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
We were very excited to see the Kirov, but were disappointed. The performance was flat. The dancers were not in sync. One dancer fell. The intermissions? Oh, come on! A thirty minute intermission after Act One? Why? And where were the dramatic lifts and jumps? Aren't they supposed to be some of the best in the world? The Times article commented on the fact that the Kirov may be at a crossroads. That was evident from the show.
