The first night I had a bobber and weaver in the seat in front. Eventually I had to ask her to choose one side or the other because with her constant movement following the dancers I was seeing nothing. She smiled sweetly and said yes she thought that might be the case! I just wanted to strangle her, but at least she did sit still for the rest of the programme.
The next night, two rows in front of me, a man enjoyed the music (Swan Lake) so much that he 'conducted' the orchestra but moving his head from side to side constantly. There was nothing I could do to stop him but I was filled with 'ballet rage'
Any other fans had similar or worse occurences?

Another irritant is people using flash camera during performances dispite signs posted outside the auditorium and public announcement during intermissions.

A man was so much into the music that he was injoying it by steping the beat with his foot.
When the peformance was over and the dancers and choreographers came on the stage to bow, some of the viewers desided to skip the duty of giving the gratitude to the people who for 3 hours gave them theirs talents, strength, and sole. That was unspeakably rude.

Why do they let these people in? Why do these people want to go to a ballet in the first place? Have they no taste, no manners, no CLASS, dammit?
Sorry, just going to lie down with a wet towel on my head.....

I wish theaters would get tough -- if a cell phone goes off during a performance and an ussher can see whose it is, toss the bum out during the break. But I suppose it'll never happen.
