New York City Ballet’s “Contemporary Choreographers” program was a marriage of ballet convenience. “Opposites attract” is another old saying; and the final Thursday night program of NYCB’s fall season proved both saws right. The styles, themes and genres of dance in the triple bill had little in common; but convenience is convenient as long it lasts.
