Firebird: Dancing was great (as usual) but the choreography didn't excite me and the stage set overwhelmed the production.

The first item on the program: Duets by Merce Cunningham was terrific.

A glorious performance! We had great seats and the dancing, costumes and staging were superb! The primary ballerina was excellent and very "birdlike" in her movements (ballet titled Firebird). A wonderful evening!
