Reflections: The Bolshoi Project
2 tickets
Tier 3 (front)

How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Our seats were better than expected, lower part of 3rd tier, and well worth the price. The dancers were beautiful, but some clearly out of their element dancing modern ballet when they should stick to their expertise of classical. A little too much 'furniture moving' (lifts) for me. Everyone of the ballerinas (a bit too thin) had incredible extensions, the men graceful and high in their jumps. Too bad the orchestra wasn't used more; a waste to have musicians sitting with taped music playing. Didn't need two intermissions; no scenery to move and minimal costuming to change. The OCPAC shouldn't let latecomers in, to walk in front of everyone in the dark.
