Dress Circle Premium
How was your experience?
Sharp contrast between the first and second half provided an eclectic evening of ballet. The first half was filled with familiar, romantic-era music; fluid color; and exquisite choreographic composition flowing from one tableau to another. The second half was monochromatic, sharp-angled, deliberately grating, depicting WW I and Nijinski's descent into madness. The troupe exhibits flawless technique, control and grace. The audience responded to the performance enthusiastically.
