How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
This was my first time seeing Balanchine-choreographed dance, so I didn't know what to expect. The pieces from "Who Cares?" and "Donizetti Variations" were quite traditional to the point of being boring, but I found "Agon" positively delightful. Fresh, even, which is impressive considering it premiered in 1957. I don't mind sitting through some classical pieces as long as there's something more interesting along with them, but according to my companion, "Dance isn't a buffet -- I don't want to eat as much as I can."

Help others enjoy a great night out
