How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
I share the sentiments of the other reviewer; Swan Lake was very professional in every sense of the word. Odette was danced beautifully and the corps de ballet were fantastic - great lines and very precise. The Black Swan pas de deux was also beautifully danced - City is fortunate in having 2 very very capable ballerinas who can compete with the likes of SF ballet or PNB. Tschaikovsky's 12 seasons was a little lacking - of the 12 seasons I enjoyed perhaps 4-5 of them...overall a very professional and artistic ballet company with a wonderful corps de ballet
