Reviewed 1 June 2008

I've been a subscriber and enthusiastic contributor to ABT for 20 years. It has been one of the most dependable, elegant, moving experiences imaginable. But last night's Swan Lake a butchered remnant of the original with (I hate to say it)...... lackluster performances. The balcony was locked (first time I ever remember that happening) and there was a large concession stand right in the bar area blocking out the Opera House itsself to sell teeshirts.
If you want to charge me $50 more, fine, but don't destroy one of this city's few remaining mainstays of civilization.
What happened?

I saw American Ballet Theatre ( ABT ) perform in New York City on Memorial Day weekend 2007 and was thoroughly amazed. Make sure you clear time in your schedule to see them - especially if Herman Cornejo is dancing. He is worth the price of admission alone! He his beaming with stage presence, energy, and ability! The audience swooned and gasped many times during the performance. The choreography and stage design was very creative. Highly recommend!
