I gather that Martins feels an obligation to "feed this company" with new choreography, as Balanchine often said, but please let us see an ample supply of the phenomenal Balanchine repertory...It's after 5 pm in New York, so maybe we'll have to wait until tomorrow for the actual schedule.

Personally, Prejocal's Stravaganza was one of the most painful ballets I had ever seen at NYC. I had to sit out in the promenade whenever they revived it. It was always the middle ballet, of course. Not looking forward to another ballet from him. Liam Scarlatt seems to get a lot of commissions from major companies. I don't think I've seen his work.
Oddly, I found Preljocaj's Stravaganza fascinating the year it premiered, with the original cast. It served as a strong vehicle for "up-and-coming" dancers like Emily Coates Marcovici, and Wheeldon (yes, as a dancer). Kathleen Tracey finally was more than Margaret's younger sister. Millepied, in the main pas de deux, was chilling. However, the violence in that ballet (which was interesting then) should have been a foreshadow for the future ballets by Preljocaj's other works for NYCB, in which I see misogynistic undertones. I haven't cared for those later efforts.
