A preview of American Ballet Theatre's "Cinderella" by David Lyman for Playbill.

So rather than search around to find another Cinderella that was artistically worthy and relatively unknown to audiences, McKenzie decided there was nothing wrong with adding a ballet that so brilliantly plays to his company’s strengths.

 

“Finally, I had to ask myself ‘Why are you avoiding Ashton? We do MacMillan’s ‘Romeo’ and we claim that as our standard. It was time for us to do Ashton’s Cinderella and to make it our own. It’s a masterpiece. And now it’s our masterpiece.”

A review of New York City Ballet by Jonathan Leaf for EDGE.

 

Following this though, the company put the music and the dance together on an equally exalted plain. They accomplished this in presenting another repertory favorite: Robbins’ "Other Dances." Performed to the music of Chopin, it is surely among the greatest dance pieces, and in Tiler Peck it had a stupendous and very natural interpreter. Partnered by the elegant and skillful Gonzalo Garcia, it was touching, romantic and wistful -- nothing shy of astonishing.
