BWW REVIEW: New York City Ballet Brings a Stravinsky/Balanchine Program to the David H. Koch TheaterBWW REVIEW: New York City Ballet Brings a Stravinsky/Balanchine Program to the David H. Koch Theater
by Rose Marija - Mar 3, 2018

On March 1, 2018, I saw one of the final performances of New York City Ballet's Winter 2018 season (ending March 4th). The Stravinsky/ Balanchine program presents some of Balanchine's most appreciated ballets, which is exciting to experience.

While a number of the older dancers take on the style of the Master, many of the corps de ballet members seem to be dancing without the full comprehension of the spirit, even the technique, which created these works. This, of course, can be explained in part by the changes in the world in which they live. We can hope for evolution in a positive direction. (more...)

Reviewing George Balanchine 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' on Wednesday, May 24 was like visiting an old friend.

Thank you, New York City Ballet, for the recollection and for a wonderful theatrical evening. (more...)
