“Prince Igor - a dream”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

Tried my luck with a rush ticket and ended up on a second row orchestra seat. As a student, I couldn't have wished for much more. Words couldn't describe the performance. The set, the music, the feelings. Went there on a whim, but what a great one it was. The Lincoln Center in itself with its interior is a sight to see in itself.

“ABT's Don Quixote”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

Ballet has been put back on the map since Nureyev and Barishnikov, with the movie Black Swan and Misty Copeland, amongst other great performers. The athleticism and charisma of the dancers is thrilling. Even if you are not such a fan, it is amazing to watch. I also noticed it was a packed house on a Tuesday evening, which almost rivals the Bolshoi goers in Moscow. Yay for NY!

“Ballet and Opera at its best”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

This year the ballet created a Saturday matinee series that children will enjoy. Cinderella was a big hit, but my granddaughter has enjoyed the 2 other ballets as well. The Met has made this series very user friendly, and the price of seats for children is 1/2 of that for adults. A welcome respite from the high price of seats.

“What can you say -- a must in NY”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2014

Even if you don't like opera much, you should go if you can, just for the experience. Some things can't be missed in NY, and this is one of those.
