Well I tried to like it, but ended up leaving after two acts. I found it choreographically very empty. Bored out of my mind.
On Saturday night, the theatre was packed, but a lot of people left early. I rushed out right after the at the end of the third act, because I feared problems getting out of the congested parking lot, but it was half empty when I got there, and the attendant confirmed that many people left early. Oddly, there were no curtain calls. I thought YYT deserved one. Her dancing is unique. She generally does not take steps, but rather, flows. Her lifts demonstrate true flight, without hesitation or weight.
In total, I saw four ballets from this company. None left me with any hint of emotion. Much of the choreography lacked impact or emotional significance. Even Cinderella did not truly express suffering or evoke pathos. She had a smile on her face most of the time. The dancers were talented and interesting, but I was not moved.
The production values of Cinderella, though, excelled. The audience was awed by the puppetry and the development of the coach that took Cinderella to the ball.
Wendy Whelan was in the audience, on crutches. I guess that is why she did not dance this Fall.
