“Swan Lake!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

Swan Lake is amazing! Such control and strength. The costumes and sets are beautiful and so engaging. The music is really one of the best and I love all the solo piece. I could help it but I was more engaged watching the soloist sometimes over the dancers! Really inspiring production.

“Swan Lake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

My wife and I saw the ABT performance of Swan Lake at Lincoln Center. It was simply wonderful. The score is beautiful, the dancing transformative. One of the pleasures of experiencing ballet at Lincoln Center is that the dancers, musicians and designers are some of the best in the World. And there are a lot of them. The stage is filled with dancers. The pit is filled with musicians.

“Lovely debut of new ballet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2013

We saw the Ratmansky Premiere: Shostakovich Trilogy on a Saturday night. This is an interesting contemporary, yet classic ballet. My teen prefers performances with large sets and fancy costumes, both were minimal in these performances. The performances were outstanding.
