An Accomplished Premiere, Served Along With Other FlourishesBy Alastair Macaulay, The New York Times

The generous breadth of taste shown by New York Theater Ballet with its Signatures series is good for New York's whole dance scene. This weekend at the Florence Gould Hall it showed pieces by Frederick Ashton, Merce Cunningham and Anthony Tudor - three of the 20th century's supreme choreographers - as well as a world premiere by the British choreographer Richard Alston. Larger than the excellence of any one work here, which is saying much, was the stylistic diversity of the program. I've been grateful for this company before; I've never admired it more than on this occasion.
