How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
It was ok and pleasant to watch, however, after having seeing Ratmansky's ballets in Russia by their two great ballet companies, I can only give 3 stars to his NCB version. The ballerinas lack posture and speed. Their moves remind the choreographic gymnasts dancing at the Olympic games. Music also lacked expression necessary for performing such complex modern pieces. But the auditorium seemed to enjoy the show, probably, it's just a matter of taste and what you compare it to.
