How was your experience?
This performance was beyond sublime. Until I saw it last night, I didn't realize that what the production crew accomplished was even technically possible on stage -- I'd thought it could only be done on the silver screen. The whole evening was magical and I was transfixed throughout ... and I'm not even a fan of ballet!(-: Don't miss it if at all possible. My only complaint (applies to SF Symphony as well as SF Opera House where this was performed)? Make access to coffee more accessible than it is! There's alcohol (to send you to sleep) on every floor but finding the one outlet for coffee took so long that there was no time to drink it before the intermission was over.
