Courteous security staff and ushers. Audiences always appear to be happy to be here and the house is an outstanding venue to see ballet. Concessions, of course, exorbitantly priced but it is NYC.
I went to NYC Ballet and it was spectacular. I swear I started crying when I saw all the colors and all this beautiful art everywhere.
