This was an absolutely beautiful production. Stunningly performed with gorgeous sets and costumes. I had never been to The Met before and it is a great venue. We easily walked from our midtown hotel. more »
This is not only the best classical dance company in the USA but arguably one of the best in the world. The company excels at Balanchine choreography, the company founder, but also dances new works from Justin Peck and Alexei Ratmansky. The company continues to produce great dancers, making each performance an exciting opportunity to discover an artist interpreting the choreography in new and exciting ways.
The 70s decor is lovely, especially the main chandelier in the hall. Seats are comfortable with sufficient leg room. The performers (musical and dance) were superb.
