The last time I saw Liebeslieder I was sitting next to a couple of overdressed suburban women who seemed to think the performance was an ideal time to slurp their bottles spring water, crunch mints, and get caught up on each others' doubtless fascinating lives. They left at the pause, thinking it was an intermission, and either weren't allowed back in, or couldn't have been bothered. Either way, they were in the right place, as far as I was concerned.

Of course, I somehow forgot to tell them that it was only a pause, when I saw them getting up....

"Circus atmosphere" espcially for the acrobatic steps by the men, describes ABT's audience well.
