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
