How was your experience?
The Wiltern is a beautiful venue but the actual performance by the Moscow Ballet was a bit of a letdown. They omitted some key scenes such as Clara sailing away as she starts off to dreamland and most surprisingly the three Russian men who, in my opinion, give the most powerful performance in the show. They also had these wired animals walking around the background in some of the scenes. They were kind of funny but definitely distracted from the dancers.
