I don't how ballet friendly he is, but this seems encouraging:
Raised on the Upper West Side, Mr. Bernstein said he was taken as a 6-year-old to the Metropolitan Opera to see Leontyne Price in "Aida."
"It was a transformational moment," he said. "It was a time in New York when middle-class people did that."
To some extent, Mr. Bernstein said he would like to return Lincoln Center to that role, as a place where just about anyone would come to see Tiler Peck dance or Nathan Gunn sing.
This year Lincoln Center Festival has zero ballet representation, it's such a letdown after RDB & Mariinsky in 2011 & POB in 2012. I hope LC invites at least one ballet company each year.
