"The Corps de ballet acquitted themselves with aplomb and Dance Mistress Mary Silverstein is to be commended. The dancers movements were fluid and organically executed with all of the corps achieving a splendid sense of ensemble that achieved an emphasis toward a whole artistic truth with no one pulling attention away from each other or the story their movements were enacting.
