Thanks for the reports, I was on the fence, now I'll save my pennies for the upcoming Mariinsky NY season. However, the LA Times has a more generous review: http://www.latimes.c...0726-story.html

So the whole show finished in 75 minutes including intermission? How's the reaction from the audience?

 

I would say that the audience yesterday was a bit surprised at how quickly the first work ended and slightly less so about the second. The third work seemed reasonably long. Overall, the audience was enthusiastic and appreciative, I suspect mainly for being able to have a glimpse at the amazing capability of these two great artists.

No, there were two intermissions: one was 20 minutes and one was 25 minutes. So that prolonged the torture.

 

The audience at SCFTA will give a standing O to anything (including this and when Diana Vishneva cut up lemons onstage and passed them out to the first few rows a few months ago). Not the best arbiters of taste. One woman near me was heard loudly complaining about the second piece. People around me seemed grateful by the time the Pita rolled around that something somewhat tangible was occurring though. But yes, what Buddy said seemed to be the general reaction.

. . . the upcoming Mariinsky NY season. . .


When and where is this?

 

 

Could 'California' have meant the Mikhailovsky as that too at various times is scheduled to feature the same two dancers?

Ardani just sent out a tweet about the March 7-8, 2015 engagement at City Center. Is this the same program you just saw at Segerstrom?
