It was excellent. The company is beautifully trained; their work so clean. I'm not such a fan of Balanchine, but they do it beautifully. The 2 pas de deux, especially, Liturgy, were gorgeous and the Tharp was a lot of fun and wonderfully danced. I love that they have a live orchestra. This is a firstrate company.
