During my last visit to New York City (June 11, 2016), I was lucky enough to get tickets for ABT at the Metropolitan Opera House. ABT is always inspiring and their performance of "The Golden Cockerel", choreographed by Alexei Ratmansky (after Michel Fokine), with music by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, was an unforgettable one. "Etoiles" Hee Seo (Queen of Sehmakhan) and Sarah... More

My daughter LOVES ballet so we considered ourselves very lucky to be in NYC when the ABT were in town. We saw Swan Lake and it was stunning. The Lincoln Centre is amazing, the orchestra, the sets, and costumes were exceptional - as you would expect. For a student of the art form, to see America's premiere ballet company in... More

I watched Swan Lake and found it incredible. Met Opera has a great acoustics, orchestra and ballet corps. Marcelo Gomes and Isabella Boylston (principal dancers) were fantastics.

This was my first time going to the ballet ever, and I specifically went to see Misty Copeland in the matinee Swan Lake. What a delightful show, so much emotion and talent. Copeland and the entire company delivered an amazing show. I definitely want to see another ballet soon!!

I'd never seen ABT perform before, but they really live up to their reputation. I've never seen such beautiful ballet. The performers were also great actors, and, as with the opera, the sets are amazing. Shout out to Misty Copeland for taking the time to meet fans and sign autographs. She is truly lovely, and seeing her perform was our... More

I adore Lincoln Center and have great memories throughout the years, of the fountain, the giant Chagall paintings, the red velvet interior, the massive crystal chandeliers, and the phenomenal orchestra! I saw the ballet "La Fille Mal Gardee", and loved the performance--the staging, the dancing, the music... It was the experience I had hoped for--only better!

Attended the ABT performance today (5/18) for the first time. We went to see Misty Copeland, who was wonderful as Firebird. There were 2 other dances which were amazing. Great choreography, music, sets and lighting. Hope to go back soon.

They sent me many letters where they beg for money. But what about giving something in return? They never have a representative to answer the phone. Their site never work but if you somehow will get there, you'll have to pay $12 for each ticket. This is the place for super rich, not for a regular teacher. I am very... More

ABT probably does not need another review. It is clear that one expects excellence from this troupe. We went to see a matinee ballet. Three acts: Company B, Monotones I and II, and Green Table. Do not despair if you are late. Company B is a bit of a mumble about the popular music during the II World War. Unconvincing... 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.
