The highlight for me is "Dance of the Snowflakes," with men and women in identical white tutus leaping back and forth across the stage while projecting bomb-bursts of snow into the air. Whenever I hear the music of this section, even while watching the Russian or Balanchine versions, part of me thinks of Morris and the way his rapidly developing snow storm captures the feeling of Tchaikovsky's score.

I agree entirely. I guess that's one of the things that separates comedic art from horse play.
These videos look like the performances would be more fun for the performers than audience members!

Other attractions were, Onegin with Marcelo Gomes and Marijn Rademaker as Tatiana, Maria Eichwald as Onegin, Raymonda 3rd act variation by Andrei Merkuriev (he was fabulous on pointe), Nikiya 2nd act death scene solo by Marcelo Gomes which was very beautiful and at the same time funny, Manon 2nd act solo by Vladimir Malakhov, Bayadere Manu dance by Joshua Hoffalt, Mathieu Ganio and Friedemann Vogel, Kitri 1st act variation by Ivan Vasiliev.
It was so difficult to get tickets for this gala because of this but everything was well prepared and was hilarious.
