How was your experience?
I was once a ballet dancer but I had never seen the Kirov. It was thrilling! All I could think about was the years of tradition, that Royalty had once watched the dances we were watching and of all the wonderful dancers that I had idolized as a child who had come from the Kirov: Baryshnikov, Makarova. My only problem with it was the very, very long intermissions. The kids around us got very fidgety.
