NYCB is doing Swan Lake in January 2006 in NYC. Which version is better between NYCB and ABT?

That will pretty much depend on your taste. If you prefer a more traditional version, ABT probably won't totally satisfy you, but it will contain more of the usual Swan Lake elements than NYCB's production. However, if you'd rather see something new and different, NYCB is probably the way to go.

allegromezzo, you already posed the same question on a different thread, and it has drawn several replies (including one by Hans).

We don't like duplicate threads, because they become confusing. Anyone wishing to offer guidance or an opinion, please click the link and do so on the original thread. I'm closing this topic to keep the discussion "neat."

I hope that once you've seen whichever Swan Lake you opt for, you'll post your reactions. Maybe you'll see both versions, and you can give your own comparison! :P
