There was a nasty blizzard that hit NYC yesterday morning and didn't abate until early the next morning. That didn't stop many dance lovers from attending the start of New York City Ballet's always highly anticipated Winter Season. Winter Season is always an exciting time for dance lovers -- after nonstop Nutcrackers, "real" ballet is back! Last night opened with an all-Balanchine bill of Concerto Barocco, Kammermusik No. 2, and closed with the evergreen Who Cares?
First things first: a few coordination problems between the 8 Concerto Barocco corps girls aside, this company looked in great shape. The male and female corps of Who Cares? was snappy and energetic. This bears repeating: what a great company!
