The classics are also wonderful to watch, however I'm not a fan of Kudelka's revamped Petipa works (Nut, Swan Lake, and Sleeping Beauty will be next). I also feel that the company needs more dancers who are really comfortable with the technical demands of the tutu ballets. Opening night cast is always great, but sometimes the others aren't. As for modern pieces, I'm glad that Kudelka is encouraging the dancers to broaden their range, but the new works comissioned are very hit and miss (as with anything new), so it really varies. I liked "A Delicate Battle" but didn't really enjoy "the Comforts of Solitude" or "the Contract", and don't see those staying in the repertoire for very long.
With all this said, next season looks to be a great mix of all these styles. I'm especially looking forward to Bayadere, Fille, Elite Syncopations, and le Spectre de la Rose.

I definately enjoy both the Classical and the Romantic - more contemporary works in the vein of "comforts of solitude" make me impatient. I guess I need my fix of "classical technique" when I go to the Ballet.

Come to think of it, wouldn't this be a good topic for NYCB and other larger company forums as well?
