A NYCB review from Broadway World:

George Balanchine is commonly referred to as the father of neoclassical ballet. His vision allowed him to see another side of the art, and his works ushered in a paradigm shift that would affect it forever. By stripping his ballets of their plots and trappings, Balanchine exposed the raw beauty of movement and made dances that were about dance and little else.

A review of New York City Ballet by Mary Cargill for danceviewtimes.

 

Sebanstien Marcovici, the October 9th Poet, is a bit mature for the naive young man, but captured the eager gaucheness of the Poet. But the moment, when he is shut out of the dinner party, which can be wrenching, just slid by. However, the appearance of Janie Taylor, as the Sleepwalker, elevated the ballet to its proper hypnotic level. She swept on with a sense of urgency, her long hair almost tingling. There is something about the shape of her face that catches the light and she looked like alabaster lit from the inside, inhuman and unforgettable.
