The dancing in this season's penultimate program was of such a high caliber that, for once, even if the choreography had been of lesser quality, the enjoyment factor probably wouldn't have been much affected. Fortunately, that was not the case. With an intriguing world premiere, a glance at the past, and a relatively recent work that has acquired a lovely sheen, the program showed a fine company that is confident and at ease with itself. There was very little not to like.
