The dancing was superb - as always.. The new ballets allowed the dancers to showcase their talents - especially the men.The third ballet (Wheldon) was my favorite, and both new ones will surely become a lasting part of the NYC repertoire.
The acclaimed New York City Ballet, renowned for its linear purity, speed, and musicality, performs two mixed repertory programs accompanied by the Kennedy Center Opera House Orchestra.
