Founders Circle (1st Balcony)
How was your experience?
Not quite the traditional rendition and sometimes hard to follow the story line. Parts of this performance were excellent, but some of the dancers' control was a bit off, some hesitations and not always a perfectly polished finish to the step. I was privileged to see Barishnikoff in person, so I may be comparing a bit. Overall a spirited and satisfying performance.
