You'll also hear many of us mourn over the ballets that they no longer dance, the core part of their heritage.
ABT is not like NYCB. NY City Ballet is a company that has a treasure chest of Balanchine and Robbins ballets that rotate in and out of the rep. ABT has a treasure chest of great ballets and failures but also a history of selling tickets by presenting full length "story ballets" with international stars. The rep programs are not the meat and potatoes of the company.
I'm with Helene in mourning the loss of some great ballets. The rep programs that ABT does often consists of lesser works while great works are not revived (perhaps because of costs).
