The main entrance to the theater is on 68 Street. Several patrons, me included, came along 69 St. And had difficulty finding the entrance. None of the passersby knew where I theater was even though it is only half a block away! Very New York!Dances Patrelle Presents Romeo and Juliet info • Sep 15 2014 star this tip starred

I enjoyed the setting of old NY. My favorite part was the skaters on the pond in Central Park. The dancers were great especially the young Maria. I loved the costumes and there was this sweet little boy as a Chinese page who was adorable. I hope to see it again next year.

The Show was great the seats were good only problem was they had four tickets waiting for me instead of the three I ordered (I ordered two then later added one more). I hope I was only charged for the three I ordered. Thank you Goldstar I love...continued
Quotes & Highlights
“The Patrelle Yorkville Nutcracker, set in a bygone New York, appeals to the tourist in me: it’s so full of New York and American detail (even Theodore Roosevelt makes an appearance) that I wanted to watch it again to notice more of what it tells of local history.” —Alastair Macaulay, The New York Times
The production runs 2 hours including 1 intermission.
About the Ticket Supplier: Dances Patrelle
Dances Patrelle (dP) is a dynamic professional ballet company embarking on their 25th season! dP presents two annual seasons in New York — the timeless holiday tradition, The Yorkville Nutcracker, and a spring repertory season.
Francis Patrelle’s body of work includes over 50 original ballets choreographed for Dances Patrelle, and spans an incredibly wide range of styles, from his beloved American Songbook collection, to such contemporary classics as Romeo and Juliet, Madame X, Macbeth and Rhapsody in Blue. Heralded by Lynn Garafola in Dance Magazine as a choreographer with “a personal vision…classical because it is rooted in metaphor and symbolic language [and] populist because of its legibility and broad cultural resonance,” Patrelle has also cultivated a long-time collaboration with composer Patrick Soluri, commissioning four original scores including 2009’s Murder at the Masque.
Known for attracting the great talent of each generation, Dances Patrelle is pleased to count ballet stars Marcelo Gomes, Maria Riccetto, Donald Williams, Lourdes Lopez, Jock Soto, Merrill Ashley and prima ballerina Cynthia Gregory among its past and present dancers.
For 25 seasons, Dances Patrelle has tapped into the human experience, connecting intimately with the audience and continuously reinventing dramatic dance.
