It was one of the best decisions I could have taken to go see this show, full of emotion and art. Definitely one of the best in the world.
My family loves Lincoln Center and the ballets performed by the New York City Ballet. Not only are the performances magical but the orchestra plays magnificently as well! And what a gorgeous facility! You couldn't ask for a better place to visit for a cultural experience in NYC.
The ballet is lovely and the performance wonderful. I don't understand why the audience members all looks the same. Privilege, little diversity on stage. Very little diversity in an audience in the most diverse city in the world!??! The NY City Ballet should do more. The ballet was wonderful and the performance lovely.
