Nothing disliked. I went with my wife to attend the swan lake show, it was out of this world. The pace is really royal

I had never seen a ballet before and took the opportunity to purchase a very expensive stalls ticket as a one-off treat. I saw Mayerling.

Prior to the ballet's commencement, I ate in the restaurant which is a very attractive place. However, I was a bit disappointed by the food, particularly a side dish of asparagus which at £7.50 was over-priced. Although we were in the asparagus season, I'm afraid the chef bought some fat, woody specimens which did not steam through properly and were therefore rendered inedible. i did mention this to the waiter, who didn't seem to appreciate the finer understanding of correct asparagus cooking or purchase but who was nevertheless polite.

Suitably fed and watered I went to see the ballet itself and was very impressed by the magnificence of the theatre. It is an amazing place and on a par with anything in Vienna.

Spetacular place to watch a ballet performance, speacially from Bolshoi. The performance of the Swan Lake was emotional and strong! Loved it!

The building and lay out of this establishment are not what I expected to be overwhelmed by, but it is an incredible location. The bars and food arrangements are very well organised for such a busy crowd and you can have a marvellous evening with friends taking in the surroundings, as well as the incomparable quality of the dancing.

You can't beat the Proms for affordable classical music in London in August. It's not air-conditioned, though, so dress in layers and prepare for warmth and humidity.
