Despite a few hiccups in the last performance of program two, the beautifully balanced triple bill satisfied a hunger for good choreography well performed, challenging the hearts and minds of viewers as well as the dancers. With one world premiere and two reprises from last season's new repertoire, the evening proved to be a most pleasant illustration of how varied contemporary perspectives on this much beloved old art can be.
