Saw Misty Copeland in The Golden Cockerel. Plot was a Russian fairytale that I wasn't familiar with. Great scenic and costume design - very playful like a cross between folkloric decoration and an Henri Rousseau painting. The company, excellent as always, and Misty - charismatic...More

I saw Misty Copeland dance the lead in Don Quixote at the Met in NYC. The audience plays a game in New York I like to call who can start a round of applause and how often. Clapping would start after the dancers, not just...More

The last four weeks of the season will showcase the best and the breadth of ABT. This week is Swan Lake with a varied set of casts, each unique in its own way. The most exquisite ballet in the classical sense. Then Eugene Onegin: wonderful...More

I'm sure this will sound ignorant to anyone that regularly attends the ballet, but I had no idea the performance would stop regularly so that the dancers could take bows. To say I rarely go to the ballet is generous. I went last year in...More

Enjoyed the show. Seen some great ballet and entertainment. Even if you're not a fan of ballet, like I was... give it a try. You'll be pleasantly surprised. Beautifull theater and people still make an effort to look elegant.

You can visit the gift shop on the first floor at the right entrance to the Metropolitan Opera house. It's fabulous. There are also group tours of the Opera house, home of ABT.
