Manon doesn't get better

Beautiful, effortless performances by all but Julie Kent, Roberto Bolle and Daniil Simkin were spectacular.

This was my first ballet, and I was quite pleasantly surprised by the experience. I arrived at the box office right when they opened to claim my $25 student rush tickets (an incredible deal!) for the matinee of Giselle. I was not familiar with the story, but I had heard of the play, and it was the last day of... More

Recently saw Manon by ABT at the Lincoln Center. Can't say I'm a huge fan of Kenneth MacMillan's choreography, but Manon was danced by Polina Semionova who, in my opinion, carried the whole production. She is FANTASTIC! I will see NYCB next time I'm in NYC, or ABT if Polina is dancing. Definitely worth it if you are a balletomane... More

For years, my friends and I have had spring season tickets to the ABT. I look forward to each series! The Metropolitan Opera House is a magnificent venue! And, our seats are the best - front row mezzanine. The performances are varied and beautifully executed. The settings and the costumes are always detailed and extravagant. And, the orchestra is outstanding!... More

I have been a patron for almost 20 years, and I try to see at least one ballet per year. This year's choice was Don Quixote. It was an outstanding performance.. the pas de deux was a show stopper. The costumes were a beautiful array of pastels that change in the light. The color scheme and the set were showstoppers!... More

Although they aren't the marquee pair to dance the lead roles in American Ballet Theatre's performance of Don Quixote, Isabella Boylston and Daniil Simkin gave a splendid performance in this bright production. Ms. Boylston's turns, jumps and fouetté a were perfectly turned and her spirit seemed to rise during all three acts until reaching a beautiful crescendo in the final... More

I was so excited to get tickets to see Firebird and NY City Center but their policy on making one purchase a ticket for an infant (who would be sitting with me) is a terrible one. I wanted to take my 5 year old and my baby - excited to have The Little Orchestra as their first introduction to classical... More

There aren't many things you can say unequivocally are "the best." The American Ballet Theatre is one of them. I first saw this company on tour in Denver shortly after Mikhail Baryshnikov came to the US and watched him perform with Gelsey Kirkland. They seemed to fly on the stage and I was captivated Since then, this company has been... More

Swan Lake is amazing! Such control and strength. The costumes and sets are beautiful and so engaging. The music is really one of the best and I love all the solo piece. I could help it but I was more engaged watching the soloist sometimes over the dancers! Really inspiring production.

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.
