If coming from NJ, take NJ transit to NY Penn station (33rd st). Then just walk up one block on 7th Ave and jump on the #1 Subway (Van Cortland Ave/242 St) and it takes you straight to Lincoln Center (66th St) which was a 13 min ride. $2.75

The two Balachine pieces were wonderful, the Robbins' piece "Opus Jazz" did not live up to Robbins usually wonderful choreography, but the dancers seemed to be having a fun time with the piece.

We enjoyed the program immensely. The variety of music (Donizetti, Stravinsky, Prince) and the exquisite dancing uplifted us all.

A wonderful experience of three short ballets danced in three different styles of dance: classical, modern and jazz. All superbly executed!
It was a most wonderful evening. Another beautiful memory was created.

Description

New York City Ballet presents three pieces from its Spring Repertory. In The Donizetti Variations, choreographer Balanchine brings feats of bravura dancing to center stage in this exhilarating series of classical dances in the Bournonville style. Balanchine next collaborates with composer Stravinski on a signature black and white ballet that underscores the symmetries within Stravinsky’s brilliant violin concerto. Finally, N.Y. Export: Opus Jazz evokes the post-war 1950s when city streets were bustling with teens moving to cool jazz.
