Perhaps fewer...Balanchine trifles and more serious things like The Four Temperaments or even Serenade or works by Cunningham (who kept a keen eye on what Balanchine was doing). Doesn't seem to be the time to retreat into perfect worlds while everyone is suffering so much.

I'll respectfully disagree. Because they're not "perfect worlds" but rather goals: testaments to what flawed humanity is capable of creating. The trivial we can probably do without. Junk food is just that. But we need the transcendent striving of art now especially.

I think so.  The experience of art is like a trip; it takes us away, out of our ordinary existence; it changes us - maybe permanently.  Artists understand that, at least some of them do:  Speaking at the Skirball Center of NYU during the last season of TSFB, Suzanne Farrell remarked, "It's not, we come down to you; we invite you to come up into our world."
