This year's "Nutcracker" introduced Australian soloist Luke Ingham to the company. He is tall handsome with good lines and nice elevation, a fine addition to the roster. Despite a couple glitches as Snow King, he attentively partnered a secure but cool Sarah Van Patten.

It was corps work at this best -- an indicator of just how fine a company SFB is.

The ballet company, founded by the venerable choreographer George Balanchine and Lincoln Kirstein, who served as the company's General Director, allowed Leutwyler unfettered access to the workings of the group and he has compiled his work into a 488-page book with more than 270 photographs, aptly titled 'Ballet.'
Selections of his pieces are also on display at the Foley Gallery in New York.
