Sarah Kaufman’s review of the Paris Opera Ballet’s “Giselle” [“Soaring return,” July 7] should have appeared on the op-ed page instead of in the Style section. Favorably comparing the ballet to the Occupy Wall Street protests says something about the liberal bias of the reviewer but nothing about the performance. Only the latter part of the article, which actually reviewed the performance, should have been in Style.

My wife and I were considering getting tickets for this beautiful ballet. However, the image of those clueless protesters has ruined the imagery. We’ll sit this one out.
