Depending on the space allotted for the review, if a newspaper has already reviewed a piece they may omit mention of it to concentrate on the premieres.

I thought that Nacho Duato's "Jardi Tancat" was very well danced, perhaps even more than Dumais' "Scripted." The company has had it in its rep for several years, but they've had to replace some dancers in it this time around, and I was very impressed with the level of ensemble work despite this change.
I sincerely doubt that the Time's critic left before the program was over, but the paper frequently has to cut reviews down (for space considerations) and she may have wanted to write more thoroughly about fewer works than give a cursory few words to each dance.
Just an idea.

I'd add a comment about not mentioning a ballet. I've noticed several papers (the Arizona Republic is one of them) which apparently has such an early deadline that the critic either has to review the dress rehearsal, or leave before the last piece, and notes what he did in the review. But editors are not above cutting from the bottom if there's a space crunch.
