Sorry, I didn't see this until now. I saw the April 10 show. Petrouchka was great, with lots of pathos tinged by humor, great sets, and dancing. The playing by the orchestra as fantastic.

Unfortunately, the rest of the program was a letdown. Zanella's insipid ballet was affected, had no interesting choreography --- he used ballet vocabulary, but in only the most basic of ways. Contrast this to Artifact Suite or Possokhov's Classical Symphony, never mind any Balanchine or Petipa --- and had the typical dark and moody lighting with enigmatic stage sets. Neither of which really served the choreography at all. I hope they didn't pay too much for this piece. The only nice thing was the lead girl's costume: it looked like a sheer, black body suite with shiny embroidery that resembled some kind of sci-fi armor a superhero from the future might wear.

Wheeldon's Number Nine was a monotonous rush from beginning to end, except with none of his usual witty constructions (even when he doesn't have anything more to say), and no time to rest the eye. The costumes in bright colors looked great.
