New York City Ballet once again has a crop of ballerinas with compelling personalities as well as killer technique. NYCB’s “French” all-Balanchine program laid forth the garden in a variety of blooms, some extravagant, some neatly compact, all with different fragrances and all in a different state of blossom. From that, pick your bouquet. Some ballerinas are more equal than others, and we tend to be partisan.
