I'm going to sound cranky because there's certainly nothing bad about this season, but it just seems a bit National Ballet of Everywhere to me.

Will be very interesting to see how Balanchine's "Midsummer..." does in comparison to the "Midsummer" already in their rep choreographed by Bruce Wells...
(I really enjoy Wells version)

I'm pretty happy about it. What would your dream season look like?
