A beautiful production. The dancers were technically perfect and passionately dramatic. The sets and costumes were also exquisite. The gorgeous score was performed outstandingly with the exact tempos for each dancer. Bravo to all involved.

Live? I don't think so!

From what I understood, the performance was being broadcast LIVE from Russia. When I checked our local 6:30 (EST) against Russia's current time, it was 2:30 in the morning for them. I know the Russians love their ballet but I doubt they would attend one that early in the morning just to make it work for us American's schedule. Ok, so if it wasn't LIVE, why did we have to endure 1.It didn't start on time. We got to look at a looped trivia questions screen until close to 7. We could hear the crowd murmering noises in the background but no video. 2.There were two 15 minute intermissions. Why? I've sat thru all 3 of the Lord of the Rings extended version movies(seperately of course) without a problem. The actual performance : Excellent. Video: eh - not very clear IMHO. I was expecting the visuals to really POP! The trailer I watched on my computer monitor were crisper. Sound: Not loud enough- I even asked the manager to turn it up during one of the breaks-he didn't. total score: 7

The ballet was wonderful. The venue at Vail is perfect. The audio part of the ballet was terrible. John
