I’m shared. Up to me, choreography lacks originality and the magical world supposed to be at the chore of the work is ruined by some impossible costumes. Bullion and Dupont saved the ballet with their presence and skills on the Premiere trying to throw us in a different world but with Osta/Pech and Ganio/Gilbert down to earth dancing, it turns to be really boring.

BORING ?????

Yes, deadly boring… and this is really what I feel after more than a week of shows, considering the fact that now I’m familiar with and so are the dancers. I find the choreography redundant and aiming to nothing, it is steps for steps and this is not what I fancy in ballet. The central pas de deux is far too long and completely conventional,as is the "reprise" of the last pas de deux. Everything you expect to happen, actually happens...
