One of the top 3 world's Ballet Ensambles! You like ballet? Don't miss it! It's made like those jewel boxes with ballerina that's dancing just 1000000x bigger. And the performances...the ballerinas take your breath away. It's nice to see that Balanchine's choreographys are still living...More

Everything about City Ballet is amazing… the venue, the costumes, orchestra, the ballanchine choreography and of course the talented dancers. If you get the opportunity to go to NYCB, go! It truly is an iconic piece of American history.

We were really pleased to get last minute tickets to see the NYCB and they didn't disappoint. The beautiful dancing and the amazing David Koch theatre made it a wonderful evening.

This was the best stage version I've seen. Set, effects, musicians, costumes, and dancers pleased every aspect of my senses! Also, enjoyed the inclusion of local children. Thanks NYC Ballet Co! I'll be back for more!

My daughter and I saw NYCB version of The Nutcracker and fell in love with this story. I have never seen anything like it. If you have the chance to see anything by the NYCB do it.

We saw the nutcracker ballet on Christmas Eve. The sets and costumes were beautiful, the dancing underwhelming. The pas de deux with the sugarplum fairy was so unstable that it was unsettling to watch. There were several moments when I though the ballerina might fall...More
