My wife and I saw the 3rd annual tribute to George Ballanchine on January 19th, and it was nothing short of phenomenal.
The company is technically impressive, with some of the ballerinas exceptionally effortless and posied. We saw renditions of Swan Lake, Sleeping Beauty, amongst others.
There was a special feature afterwards with some of the ballerinas staying to disucss their personal feelings on being a ballerina and Mr. Ballanchine, then performing a brief dance.
While it was just me and my wife that day, we envision returning with our children once they are old enough to experience the beauty of the NYC Ballet together.
