Living in NYC, I usually look to Broadway whenever I need to transport myself to another time, another place, or to simply listen to a good story. Having spent close to 8yrs here, I recently decided it was time to look to other New York institutions for entertainment. This weekend I treated myself to a ballet matinee and found myself completely blown away by the experience. First of all, the David Koch theater, located in Lincoln Center, is stunning which is a treat in and of itself. But on top of that, I found the ballet to be so beautiful, the dancing to fluid and graceful, that I was completely mesmerized for the full 2hrs, which went by so quickly it was almost like a dream. The performance I watched was La Sylphide, and it was everything you need in a story- romance, unrequited love, witches and fairies. It was followed by a set of what seemed to be more classic dance routines which were just as beautiful. All in all, it did not disappoint and I can assure that I will be going back for more before the season is over! A tip to those not looking to break the bank, I sat in the 3rd tier and had a perfect view of the stage. So don't worry about being to high up. In fact, this may be better as it gives you a better angle.
This place is so beautiful, it has a lot of character! I absolutely loved the play that I saw. The most magnificent thing I've ever seen.
Because I can't give it 6 stars!
Took my girlfriend for her birthday to the NYC Ballet as a surprise. The ballet dancers were more than fantastic. Dance is a form of art, and it was such a great night. During the intermission we both had a glass of champagne with a strawberry and went out onto the patio looking down on Lincoln Center. Picture perfect night for her birthday.
“Top Hat and Tux Optional” Ah the ballet! The NYC Ballet based in the David H. Koch theatre has a fairly storied history and one of the most expansive repertoires around the world. You can order tickets for pickup off their website ranging from affordable to sporting event affordable ($50 - $200) but if you chance getting one at the window and qualify for discounts (e.g. curious and cultural student) they can be significantly cheaper. The line at both will call and purchase is fairly crazy so give yourself 20 minutes to get through if you are approaching curtain. The theatre is clean, simple yet GORGEOUS, comfortable, and has restroom on every floor: ladies to the left, scrubs to the right. You can dress up or dress down; there is no enforced dress code and the ushers are very approachable. Fourth ring is the highest seating area and you can see all the action without the detail. Tippy toes pounding the ground? Check! Graceful leaps into the air? Check! The extra advantage is that you can see the entire flow of the dance, a view you just can’t get in the orchestra (which leans towards the more expensive). We checked out the third ring to compare the view: the difference is eye popping! What I would recommend is that if it’s a special show they are doing, spring for third ring. If Jerry Springer or ballet are your choices that night, go for fourth ring and save the cash. Remember, no pictures inside the theatre, and be sure to clap for the dozen or so bows the hardworking dancers take. Facilities: 8/10 for easy access to restrooms Pricing: 8/10 for a variety of purchase options and price points Visibility: 10/10 for almost no blind spots Acoustics: 6/10 for “flat sound” on the Fourth Ring Humanity: 7/10 for muscles bulging through tights and an occasional weep
