As she always complains about almost everything, I didn't take much notice. And I was glad that it was me rather than a ballet debutant. Such a complaint could well have put a first-timer off ballet. However, if the majority of the general public feel it inappropreate for the audience to whoop at the curtain call of a ballet, I might feel obliged to stop doing so.
Admittedly, when I started seeing ballet 20 years ago, whooping wasn't as common as it is now. But now many more people whoops and sometimes whistles rather than bravos, especially at contemporary ballets.
In each field of performing arts, there are certain protcols, aren't there? For example, at opera, when a singer is particulary appreciated, the audience stomp their feet at curtain call. But if we did this at a musical, the meaning might get interpreted wrongly.
Should we stick to bravos and clapping at ballet whether classical or contemporary? Or we should feel free to show our appreciation in whatever way we feel comfortable?
