We went to see the Royal New Zealand Ballet perform for their first time in the United States. It was a different sort of ballet than I am used to. There were 3 acts set to different types of music, and the dancer did different types of dances. The first was a more traditional sort of ballet-style dance, which I quite enjoyed. The second was a very dark sort of non-traditional dance, which was a bit odd and stilted. The third act was set to African-style music where the dancers did a lot of whipping around. While I was glad to be able to see it, it's definitely not something I'd rush out to see again. I'm more a fan of ballets that are set to a story, so I think I'll stick to those in the future. But the Joyce Theater was very lovely and intimate without a bad seat in the house.
