It doesn't get better than Swan Lake at the Metropolitan Opera, surely? We were transported - a delightful evening in every possible way.

The performance of Midsummer's Night Dream by the New York City Ballet was excellent. The choreography was by Balanchine, the sets were beautiful, and the dancing was just about perfect.

Saw a performance of "A Midsummer NIght's Dream" and was knocked out by both the the dancing and the costumes, which had been lovingly restore/recreated from the 1964 originals. My gut reaction at the end of the performance was "WAIT! IT'S OVER????? NO! THEY CAN'T STOP NOW!!!!!!!!"

I'm not a ballet fan, but I decided to take my girlfriend for Valentines Day to see Coppelia. I thought it was going to be really boring, but I was pretty wrong. It was definitely fun and a great show. I can definitely appreciate all the hard work they put into it. I definitely will not hestitate to get tickets... More

I have been going to NYCB several times a year for 30 years. Yes it is expensive. But anyone who loves or even likes ballet must see this company, founded by Balanchine. It is one of the best in the world...one of the best companies ever. If you're not sure you like ballet or if you've never been, give it... More

One of the top 3 world's Ballet Ensambles! You like ballet? Don't miss it! It's made like those jewel boxes with ballerina that's dancing just 1000000x bigger. And the performances...the ballerinas take your breath away. It's nice to see that Balanchine's choreographys are still living through the years. You can get cheap tickets, even though they won't be with the... More

This was my first trip to NYC & at Christmas time so I had to see the nutcracker. It was truly beautiful, I felt like I was in a snow globe at one point during the show. My husband did get a little sleepy after the intermission and into the second half but we did have comfy seats and the... More

Everything about City Ballet is amazing… the venue, the costumes, orchestra, the ballanchine choreography and of course the talented dancers. If you get the opportunity to go to NYCB, go! It truly is an iconic piece of American history.

I came all the way to NYC to see the Nutcracker where it was first staged. I had only heard about the Nutcracker ballet as a child growing up and now I finally got to see it. The theatre, stage, artistes, costumes and performances were all exquiste. It brought me lot of joy and it was fascinating to watch small... More
