I would say Watermill. I just couldn't get it and I thought it would never end

I was at one performance when people where boo-ing and walking out. It is not a good ballet but I felt so horrible for Edward Villella. I don't think NYCB has performed it since the 70's.
I don't know whether it's a ballet at all, and I certainly wouldn't put the music on to listen to, but I love it.
Villella returned to dance the role twice, at around age 50. He brought with it all that he had gained in the years between. It was his belated farewell to the company. Quite wistful and melacholy. I won't forget those performances.
I believe Robbie LaFosse was to have danced it, but I don't know if he ever did.
