Thursday December 18, 2008 / 2:00pm (matinee)Kirov Ballet: The Nutcracker
How was your experience?
This is the first time I've been to the ballet for many years; I'm an opera fan; not a ballet fan. But I went because my husband wanted to go. It was beautiful to look at; the costumes were lovely, the sets were splendid, the look of it all was worth going for, the Prima Ballerina and the Nutcracker Prince were wonderful - he lifted her incredibly high when necessary - and it was a memorable experience. The only negative was that occasionally the corps de ballet did not dance in total sync and the intervals were too long. But it was indeed memorable...
