BWW Reviews: NEW YORK CITY BALLET Chases Winter's Chill With a Cheery and Cheeky Double BillBWW Reviews: NEW YORK CITY BALLET Chases Winter's Chill With a Cheery and Cheeky Double Bill
by Sondra Forsyth - Feb 27, 2015

New York City Ballet's 'All Balanchine III, Hear the Dance: Italy' features a perfect pairing of pieces that brim with Balanchine's incomparable sense of showmanship. Ballet is an art form, but Mr. B knew that it can also serve as sheer entertainment without losing integrity. Beyond that, he was a master of making us 'see the music, hear the dance', as he put it. This double bill, with works set to scores by great Italian composers, does precisely that. (more...)

by Sondra Forsyth - Feb 18, 2015

I've never been a fan of Peter Martins' choreography so I was surprised to find myself moved by the "balcony pas de deux" in Romeo + Juliet, his adaptation for the New York City Ballet of Shakespeare's tragic tale about star-crossed lovers. Sterling Hyltin as Juliet and Robert Fairchild as Romeo, returning to the roles they originated when the ballet had its premiere in 2007, used the beautiful but difficult intertwinings and lifts to convey their youthful passion in a way that was entirely believable to me.

In a word - an Ailey experience is nothing shy of transformational. If ever given the opportunity to take in an Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater performance, a few things are definitely bound to happen. You will be forever changed. Your views and ideologies will be questioned. Your biases and prejudices will be challenged and you will most definitely leave the theatre wanting to experience it again and again and again.

BWW Reviews: NEW YORK CITY BALLET Stuns in All Bach EveningBWW Reviews: NEW YORK CITY BALLET Stuns in All Bach Evening
by Jessica Abejar - Feb 12, 2015

As a part of its Hear the Dance program for the Winter 2015 season, the New York City Ballet presented two pieces featuring compositions by Johann Sebastian Bach. They were choreographed by the Company's most renowned choreographers, George Balanchine and Jerome Robbins. With minimal set and costume designs, the evening allowed for music and dance to take flight, leaving the audience at the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center in awe as they watched Bach's music come to life in a pure dance experience. (more...)

BWW Reviews: MR. B'S THE NUTCRACKER Shows Its Age at 60BWW Reviews: MR. B'S THE NUTCRACKER Shows Its Age at 60
by Sondra Forsyth - Dec 31, 2014

After the 1954 New York City Ballet premiere of George Balanchine's The Nutcracker, the production reigned supreme as the gold standard for the holiday classic even though William Christensen's excellent 1944 version was the first one ever staged in this country. By now, however, countless superb iterations of the ballet have spawned from coast to coast as well as in Alaska and Hawaii. Many of them, in my opinion, are better than Mr. B's. That may be why the matinee I saw on December 27th 2014 at the Koch Theater in Lincoln Center seemed like an obligatory musty relic that had been dragged out of the attic for yet another season.

BWW Reviews: Playing with the Rules at Fall for DanceBWW Reviews: Playing with the Rules at Fall for Dance
by Melia Kraus-har - Oct 14, 2014

New York City Center's October 10th Fall for Dance program smartly suited up with Lucinda Childs' Concerto and Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater (which indirectly featured Sara Mearns of New York City Ballet) in Ohad Naharin's Minus 16. Sandwiched between those uplifting works were William Forsythe's U.S. premiere of Neue Suite by Semperoper Ballett Dresden and a hip hop duet with Sebastien Ramirez and Honji Wang. Traditionally, the span of each Fall for Dance program granted City Center an edge in the battle for audiences in dance's busiest season. This night was no different. (more...)
