You'll have to forgive me if I don't get too worked up about the final fate of the New York City Ballet (prediction: It will be fine) when small little companies like New York Theatre Ballet struggle to attract notice. Its mission -- to present works that aren't meant to be seen on opera house stages, like Jose Limon's La Malinche and Antony Tudor's Dark Elegies -- is every bit as important as those of the larger companies.

The company's new program looks  good. Has anyone seen it?

Quote

The program it presented on Friday and Saturday, at Florence Gould Hall, exemplified this. On paper, three pieces by Jerome Robbins (usually Mr. Accessible) and a world premiere by Richard Alston (who, at 69, is Britain’s most senior acclaimed choreographer) may look undemanding. In performance, they proved dense, complex, uncompromising: dances about dance and dancing, laden with intricate choreographic detail with an emphasis on tight-knit musicality.
