Just want to agree that the production was a joy, especially after last year's Kirov "dark" interpretation. The children were very well rehearsed, however am I the only one who thinks there were too many of them? My daughter and I felt the Party Scene was overcrowded and at times company dancers were obscured by the little ones.
Snow scene was magical, although we would have appreciated the fog lifting a little earlier to reveal the Snow Queen's feet. Thought the corps work was excellent -- precise and energetic. Emily Patterson as Arabian Coffee was a highlight in Act II.
