Perhaps the move up in the theatre was at fault, but:
Lauren Fadely danced the ballerina role in Walpurgisnacht both Friday and Saturday nights. She is pictured above. Simone Messmer does not dance Walpurgisnacht. She is 5'5" and not, by any stretch of the imagination, bulky.
The gypsy and bride costumes she wears are long and heavy. They almost completely obliterate the dancer's movements. The lighting does not help, the solid dead white of the bridal dress calling attention to the fabric, rather than the dance. Jeanette Delgado looked stunning in her bridal gown and it lent a lovely, flowing touch to her variations, rather than hindering a quicker, more quicksilver quality of the Fairy. It also fit her properly (Simone's was much too loose and too long.)
I attended both performances this weekend, and will see the matinee tomorrow. I reserve judgement until I see the same cast again tomorrow.
