Carmen - A Disappointment
I should have looked into this a little more before purchasing my ticket. I must also learn the difference between what I deem Ballet and what passes for "modern" these days.
This performance was nothing like a Ballet, nothing at all. For me this was a dance production, a modern dance and not a very good one. Granted, I have never seen Carmen before and bar one piece of music, was not too sure on the music either, but this was just a mess. I have no idea what was going on when our ears had to suffer through minutes of almost Neanderthal type noises, that I think were supposed to represent the "passion" between the characters. It was hideous and most off-putting.
Thankfully I was in the same seats as my previous visit so only wasted $25 on this poor pretence of a Ballet.
