It was an interesting mix of I think three or four different songs of various moods. The duo wove in and out of one another and infused the movement with the melodrama expected of RDB. The choreography was angular and at times seems a bit frantic. Some of it worked well with the music, some of it didn't quite match the thumping 2 and 4.
While I too was dissapointed that the camera seemed to be pointed at the bridal couple or at the musicians, I think that we have to remember that it was indeed a collaborative project and that all too often the musicians are overlooked (this is unavoidable when you put them onstage). I also think that it was an interesting marketing-effort--with the performance being broadcast to the entire nation, combining hip hop and ballet I think is an attempt at drawing a younger audience, something that any ballet audience can use.
