How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
The dancing was excellent. I especially enjoyed seeing the synchrony of the corps de ballet. However, the "story" of the Corsaire is a MESS. There were so many plot turns and sop much "acting," that it became tiresome. The most outstanding dancer was a young Russian, perhaps on his way to being the next Nureyev or Barishnykov, who danced the roll of the "Slave" and did splits that turned 180 degrees in mid-air. He was sensational!
