A review of New York City Ballet by Kathleen O'Connell for danceviewtimes
Most of Wednesday evening’s leads were reprising roles they debuted last spring—Anthony Huxley (opposite Megan Fairchild) in “Square Dance”; Janie Taylor, Robert Fairchild, and Justin Peck in “La Sonnambula“; and virtually everyone in “Fearful Symmetries.” (For the record: Sterling Hyltin, Tiler Peck, Chase Finlay, Taylor Stanley, Lauren King, Allen Peiffer, Ralph Ippolito, Troy Schumacher, and Giovanni Villalobos.) Some of the younger dancers are still testing the possibilities of their new roles, but each turned in a genuine performance, and earned the right to be cast again. Returning role veterans at every level—corps stalwart Alina Dronova and soloist Adam Hendrickson in “La Sonnambula,” to name just two—danced with attention to detail and nuance. The corps was splendid throughout.
