They only allow bottled water inside the theatre, so if you get a drink that isn't water at intermission, make sure you have time to drink it. Drinks and snacks are expensive, so if you can do without your pocketbook will be happier!

I enjoyed the modern dance portion of the program. The dancing was terrific. However, I did not like the choreography of West Side Story, I was not interested in seeing both singing and dancing.

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 NYC Ballet is absolutely fabulous. I didn't love the "West Side Story" piece as much as the true ballet ones
