Disappointed
25 December 2003 | by (Missouri) – See all my reviews

While I normally love this, and most ballets for that matter, I hated this production. The music was so slow that you just felt like putting it on fast-forward, and the dancing was only less ponderous. The scenery wasn't bad but it wouldn't make you want to see this again. Definitely don't recommend this one.
