Wendy Whelan’s farewell to New York City Ballet was everything it should have been; everything she deserved after a three decade career that rewrote the definition of a ballerina. The program showed her evolution, moving from her work in the core Balanchine-Robbins repertory to the roles created on her by Alexei Ratmansky and Christopher Wheeldon.
