I was quite impressed with the Cincinnati Ballet. I am from Chicago, and while it does not quite measure up to Chicago ballet, I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the choreography. Three things I was displeased with: 1) a second intermission, which made the program too long, and 2) the way-too-lengthy discourse about upcoming events by the Ballet's director. She needs a lesson in brevity.
3) there were people in the balcony adjacent to our seats that were talking quite loudly during the second act. They were drinking, and everyone could hear their conversation. I had to say something to an attendant and I shouldn't have had to do that. It was quite distracting. The theatre attendants should have taken care of it immediately.
