The issue, I think, was the reason for Zakharova's withdrawal.

My note was in response to a post that was removed.

Don't forget that scene in Act 1, where all the officers and members of the court march in. It could serve as a recruitment video for the Ministry of Silly Walks.

I thought Maria Allash performed at the level of great art (not just the dancing). I liked the music (made me think of Shostakovich). The story was compelling, and the stagecraft (costumes and alike) a treat for the eyes. Grigorovich's choreography I found fascinating; was it the best choreography I've seen? No, but fascinating none the less (very reminiscent of Malliot IMO). He created powerful renditions of emotions.
Was it the greatest thing ever? No, but for my $18 and an afternoon, I'd do it again in a heart beat. (And it's certainly easier and cheaper than flying to Moscow or to the east coast.....which is about the only other ways I will ever see the Bolshoi -- living here in Seattle as I do!)
