The most gorgeous & exciting dancing I have ever seen, and Tchaikovsky's Music was (of course)
The Corps de Ballet was amazing for their togetherness & grace, and the Premier Dancers were remarkable & Exciting. The sheer grace of line was a thing of elegant beauty!
The 3D made it very "real" - but because there was NO additional Lighting used to augment the "Natural ("you are there") Theater Lighting", the 3D video was very dark, making it difficult to see detail.
While it was enhancing to see the dancers in 3D, I would trade the 3D any day, for brighter lighting, bringing greater color depth & detail.
The Music was loud enough, but the muffled bass sounds of Star Trek "Explosions" next door, were very distracting to the silences between notes of Tchaikovsky's music.
Although the "Live" 15 minute Intermissions (2) made it convenient to go to the restroom, they did make for an overly long evening.
In balance, I am very glad we came!
Bravo!! Do this again
Even if you THINK you don't like Classical Music, you’ll LOVE THIS! Don’t miss this
once-in-a-lifetime chance to hear this Phenomenal Symphony of a Thousand by the Great Composer, Gustav Mahler (means Painter in German). Last Day! You MUST go tonight (or Never) to hear this Spectacular example of people working together for a common goal. Performers are half LA Phil players, sitting right next to poor, young kids from Venezuela (ages 13-29) who have been given the chance to learn their instruments by joining El Sistema. (Google this) - the same system that Produced the Greatest Young Conductor in the World - Gustavo Dudamel - now Director of the LA Phil). This is NOT a plot Movie, it is a massive Concert for over 1,000 Singers & Musicians! The Music is Awesome! Unforgettable! Here is the Text of the Final Scene: "Everything transitory - Is only a parable; The inadequate Here - is an event; The indescribable Here - is done; The eternal feminine Draws us on to Heaven.”
Go see This!
