I wish I could zoom in further to look at all your mark making. Just to appreciate the works high amount of details (mainly shown in the book-like table). I am currently taking a oil painting class myself and I am really impressed by this, especially since this is the first work of yours I have viewed.  I kind of wish that your whiter elements would stand out more. The tutu fades away into the background a bit too much and I think the broken glass should need a bit more work.It is clear that the light source is mainly from the windows behind the figure, but the foreground is also quite light as well. Maybe darkening that up will also help the figures back not look the darkest (darken the blanket so it matches the darkness of the table and figure's back). 
I do love the little detail of the teddy bear in the lower right (I noticed that last minute).

So cool! I love how the re-combination of real forms does perfectly represent a swan.

Marvelous piece of work.  It totally captures the essence of this dramatic score.

I'm not very adept at writing critiques, but, wow. Just wow. The theme, the execution, the technique. All exemplary. Love it.
