Now here's an easy question. What ballet would you nominate for the best new ballet (not revival) created in the calendar year 2001?

Telemann Overture Suite in E Minor by Melissa Barak. I look forward to seeing how it transcends on to dancers it wasn't made on.

I would suggest Ib Andersen's gorgeous ballet to Rachmaninoff, 'Indigo Rhapsody', premiered a few weeks after 9/11.

I'll throw in my lot with Polyphonia. Best of a so-so crop.
