Swan Lake

I wanted to see Swan Lake for a long time. This show was beyond my expectations. I enjoyed it thoroughly. It felt like you were right there at the performance only better. I was enthralled watching the footwork of the ballerinas. I know enough about ballet to realize how outstanding all the dancers were, most epecially the prima ballerina. I believe this Russian Ballet company is the best there is. I would welcome the opportunity to see other ballets performed by them. Anyone interested in ballet would enjoy it.

Wonderful! The interviews with the artists added a nice touch and the scenes from St. Petersburg and the Winter Palace were great to see on the big screen. Anyone interested in ballet or Russian culture would enjoy this show. Must say it was long. Not for a ballet, I guess. Just seemed odd to be in the movie theater so long. About 3.5 hours including two 15 minute intermissions.

Absolute PERFECTION by the Mariinsky Ballet. The Russians are the best in the world! I have seen this company in St. Petersburg and it was one of the highlights of my world travels. Their technology is not as "perfect" but got the job done. A hugely entertaining evening. MORE PLEASE!!!!!

I took my 86 year old mom to see this at the AMC Bay Street theatre in Emeryville, CA and actually ended up leaving shortly after the film started. The 3D was TERRIBLE - and I have been to many 3D and IMAX films before so it wasn't us. When you put on the glasses it was like a psychedelic trip. I went out to get new glasses thinking that my pair was faulty, but the new ones were too. Other people in our theatre also left and asked for their money back. Very disappointing!!!
