I so much enjoyed seeing Sara Mearns dial down her drama (and yes, her makeup) to portray the character of Victoria Page. I've seen that film so many times I could actually hear the words from the film in my mind throughout the performance. IMHO, it was brilliantly conceived and executed. A few quibbles: Mearns's hair (wig?) should have been more red, like Gillian Murphy's. And I would have loved to hear the original music from the Ballet of the Red Shoes. Although the company dancers were very good in their medium, they weren't ballet dancers and it showed. I loved when Lermontov pounded his fist into his other palm. I think he may have done that in the original.
