We went here in July to see Cinderella and what a fantastic production it was. The Lincoln Centre is beautiful and a great venue for this type of production. The costumes and set design as well as the choreography were fantastic. The casts will always vary in standard but there were some standouts. Cassandra Trenary as the Fairy Spring and... More

We attended the June 25, 2015 performance of Swan Lake at the Met. It was the Most spectacular performance I have ever attended. If you are looking for a ballet with lovely costumes, the most exquisite dances EVER, and a lovely locations - this is it. We were transported into the story and hated to see the evening end. Our...

We went to Romeo and Juliet while in NYC. We had seen traveling ballet companies before but nothing of this caliber. The fight scene was executed with perfect precision with the swords providing percussion for the music. There was a full orchestra which was excellent! We sat in the balcony, but had an unobstructed view and loved it. It was... More

It pains me to write a negative review of ABT at the Met, but I would like to share an important seating tip. With few seats available at the last minute, I bought two tickets to "Sleeping Beauty" -- Grand Tier, Box 30, seats 4 and 5. Perhaps I should have known better, as I have been to the Met... More

ABT is a large company that performs in several locations. It is really two companies in one. The permanent part has had its ups and downs over a long period of time; right now it is decidedly on the way down owing to retirements that have not been replaced with dancers on the same level and more than one principal...

A night at the Met. We were very fortunate to buy tickets to the American Ballet Theatre's production of "Giselle" last night. An absolute treat after too many productions of "Sleeping Beauty" and "Swan Lake" by so many other ballet companies. Then there's "Nutcracker",ad nauseum, by every ballet troupe in the Country every holiday season. Sorry if I offend parents... More

We have been attending a PT for many years. If you like traditional ballet this is the place in New York City to go. The dancing is excellent. It would be nice to see some different Ballets occasionally. But, if you are in the mood for old favorites don't miss it.

I saw 2 of the 3 Fall shows of the 75th anniversary season. The Raymonda Divertissments were classic and beautifully executed. The Gaite Parisianne was brilliant in all aspects - stage, costumes and dancing. Twyla Tharp's Bach Paritita was epic in every way you would want it to be. With A Chance of Rain was gorgeous. Sinfonita was the only... More

We love classical ballet and are so proud to have The American Ballet Theater representing this genre here in the states. We have seen them many times at the Kennedy Center in DC, but last June we went to NYC to see their performance of The Dream and The Tempest. What beautiful productions. As always the costuming, sets, lighting and... More

This was a first live ballet for me and I took my 18yr granddaughter for her first visit. It was exquisite, the dancers especially Misty Copeland, the scenery, the costumes and the atmosphere everything about the whole evening superb. Why wait 70 years as I did? Go and see for yourselves wherever they are appearing in the world it will... More

Staying in Flatiron District

Neighborhood Profile
Flatiron District
Offering many of the city’s best restaurants and shops set amid classic New York architecture, the Flatiron District is no longer under the tourist radar. At 23rd Street is the famous triangular Flatiron Building, which makes a good picture no matter what angle you photograph it from. Be sure to look up at the elegant architecture as you stroll the streets - much of this neighborhood is part of a historic district that was home to many of the city’s most famous department stores at the turn of the century. At the northern end of the neighborhood, Madison Square Park is best known for being home to a famous burger shack, but it can also be a quiet refuge to spend an afternoon, and it frequently hosts interesting public art exhibits. In the lower part of the Flatiron District you'll find Union Square, a bustling crossroads at all times of day and night.
