The New York City Ballet is one of the cornerstones of NYC's cultural experiences. If NYCB is in residence when you are visiting NYC, DO NOT MISS!! This ballet company is perfection, of course, and classic, but also innovative and constantly evolving. If you have little ones, bring them to one of the many ballets in which there are some...

I was impressed by the overall quality of the dancers. The choreography was traditional but quite creative. The costumes were great. Cinderella herself -- breathtaking. Expressive, believable, unbelievably good at communicating her youthful emotions. I loved it.

What a beautiful night to walk up the steps, see the fountains, and enter the New York Ballet. We brought our two nieces to Cindarella, outstanding in every way. The huge pitch perfect orchestra, the gorgeous stage, the performance spectacular ! Wee sat in the first parterre, box 8, right. Three seats in front and one behind the three seats... More

If you enjoy ballet, you'll love NYCB. They do both classical and contemporary pieces and George Balanchine's Nutcracker is simply the most magnificent and family friendly production anywhere.

The first half of the program was nicely varied. Funerailles, Clearing Dawn, Varied Trio and This Bitter Earth introduced the music of several composers and choreographers with wonderful performances by the dancers. I was particularly delighted by Varied Trio (in four), the score and a performance by two dancers in an imaginative and uniquely touching pas-de-deux. The second half of... More

One of the great ballet companies in the world. If you love ballet you must go to the New York City Ballet where you'll find some of the finest dancing in the world being performed. It's on the south side of the Lincoln Center Plaza across from the wonderful fountain. If you haven't been to Lincoln Center before, walk around... More

My mother, sister, and I saw George Balanchine's The Nutcracker and it was, hands down, the most awesome thing we did during our trip to New York City. Gorgeous dancing, beautiful sets, stunning music, and all set in one of the most brillant venues in New York City, Lincoln Center! This show is worth every single penny and then some!... More

We went for the Family Saturday program, which we thoroughly enjoyed. DD loved participating. The MC was well spoken and friendly. The activites were fun. The dances illustrated the talking points well. We came back in the afternoon for Bournonville Divertissements and La Sylphide. Let's not beat around the bush. Bournonville Divertissements was boring and my least preferred type of... More

The performances of The Goldberg Variations and West Side Story Suite (All Robins) were outstanding; high quality dancing and music. The tickets are not as expensive as the Broadway shows. This is our first experience with the New York City Ballet and we definitely will come back for more.
