How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
The Moscow Ballet has some high notes, but overall, I don't think I want to attend any more events at this theatre. $20 parking was a bit ridiculous, but that was not that surprising. The fact that people were continually streaming in for nearly 45 minutes disrupting the show was beyond annoying. Flash photographers were nearly as annoying as well. The older ladies who were supposed to be ushers were rather inept. I would love a job hat required me to stand around and NOT control behaviors that other theatres would frown on. I actually heard one tell someone to go ahead and switch seats, don't let me see you. Really? So as to disrupt viewers even more?!? I was near one couple who had to move 3 times because the owners of the seats showed up, each time. Wow- WAY too many interruptions. I wonder if the dancers were surprised when the audience started to clap in bad unison to the classical music?? Maybe it was the first time many of them went to the theatre. PS live music is always best
