How was your experience?
A nice night out -- though I thought the corps had better dancers than the Russian headliners, at least the guy who danced Siegfried. The prima ballerina was very good. I was sad that no one acknowledged the excellent orchestra, which was hidden behind a scrim. I prefer being able to see the musicians or at least the conductor. The production value was good. Our seats were awful. This was my husband's first ballet and I wanted him to at least see what was going on. We moved to better unoccupied seats in the same section. He enjoyed it....but our experience was almost spoiled by the chaos at Will Call before the show.
