Several days ago we tried to purchase dinner show tickets to Breakin' Mozart online, but the website went to an error page after I hit submit payment. At that point we decided not to go as the seats we tried to buy (at the front of a table toward the front of the theater) showed as already purchased when we tried again. Since we did not receive an email confirmation, we assumed the purchase did not go through. Today, a half hour before the show, we happened to check our credit card statement online and noticed that the charge was on there. So I called the theater and they indicated we could not get a refund but that we could still come to the show and pick up the tickets at the ticket booth. The ticket booth helper said that it was not going to be a problem to get dinner even though we would be late.
So even though we were supposed to show up an hour early for the dinner package, we rushed there and were seated in our seats across from each other just a few minutes before the show started. When we sat down, one of the other guests at our table asked if we could switch seats to be side by side with our partners, as it was impossible to talk/hear across the table otherwise. We switched seats, and apparently this totally annoyed the server. She huffed for several minutes while moving our silverware and glasses, which we could have done ourselves had we known it was such a big issue. She brought us bread, soup and then a main course. She also brought us a bottle of water, but never asked us if we wanted anything else to drink. For some reason the main course was delivered about 5 minutes before the break and a few minutes later the server hovered over us and asked us if we were done twice, and said that she needed to bring the desserts during the break. Finally we gave her our plates even though we hadn't eaten about 1/2 of our dinner yet. During the break, the dessert plate, which was pretty large, came out. All the food was ok and I believe it came from the Lindner restaurant (according to the logo on the drink menu). After the show, we waited several minutes while our server stood around near the tables in the row in front of us. Finally I had to go ask her for our bill for our 7 euro water.
Based on the brochure we picked up at our hotel, I expected a show that was edgier and more fun. The show had some highlights, like the couple on the Chinese bars, the beatboxer, and the guy who juggled the diabolo, but most of the dancing (which is what I was most looking forward to) was boring and amateurish. The costumes were cheap looking and there was no diversity to the cast. I sort of felt like we were seeing a show from the 80s when break dancing was just becoming popular. There were very few modern moves and we've been way more inspired by watching ABDC (the amateur dance crew competition on American TV). In addition, elements from the storyline were just silly (the guys starting to fight when a girl walks in) and others were just thrown in for variety.
All in all, it was a disappointing experience that cost us US$235.
