How was your experience?
The dancing was very good. Overall, the performance was great. Two aspects I wasn't happy about are the facts I didn't get the seats I payed for (my seat was at row U, and I payed for A-L) and the ballet had a happy ending. Yes, Odette and Sigfried didn't die. Instead, Sigfried killed the sorcerer. This was a highly unrealistic and utopian ending. In fact, I think it subtracted from the dramatic effect of the ballet. The other thing I didn't enjoy was the fact the music was not live. Other than that, it was a good experience.
