RB - La Bayadere
Posted 12 February 2002 - 08:48 PM
Only problem I saw, the stage looked a little cramped with scenery and people sitting at the back making it feel enclosed, so Carlos and Marianela especially looked slightly contained at times. This isn't usually a problem as the stage is large, but tonight I could see the dancers starting and finishing their solos very close to the wings. But it certainly is a lovely production, with beautifully rich sets and exotic costumes. No expense spared here!
However I was apalled by four business men next to me who left as soon as the curtain went down, without giving any applause. I wish I had tripped them up as they squeezed by me. eek.gif Grr.

I understand people have to catch trains, I am one of them myself as I don't live in London. But I think it is the height of rudeness not to stay to give applause, it only takes a couple of minutes at the most, and must make the dancers feel terrible in their curtain calls when they can see people walking out after they have just danced their hearts out for them for three hours. frown.gif
