The Royal Moscow Ballet performed iconic Tchaikovsky classic Swan Lake at the Dubai World Trade Centre on Saturday night, accompanied by the spectacular Royal Moscow Orchestra. An enthusiastic conductor steered the orchestra through the first piece of music, setting the scene until the curtains opened and the ballerinas leapt on stage. While the dancers bought tremendous energy to the performance and the costumes were stand-out, the venue itself was a let-down. The amateur stage and seating setup at best resembled a high school auditorium, leaving us to believe that many would have been unhappy with parting for such large amounts of cash for the show. On top of that, the audience appeared to have left their manners at home and were chattering and playing with their phones throughout.
