KC cafeteria is horrible. Cafeteria with real restaurant $prices. Go over to Watergate and find pizza/salad place or hotel rest.for a bit more upscale. KC should be ashamed of itself for their "offerings".

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
