NYCB in London No. 6 - Serenade

Updated: Apr 4

Diana Adams

“Very welcome visitors have been the New York City Ballet, in many respects the Sadler’s Wells opposite number in America…if I have criticised many of the productions of the new company, and serious work merits serious criticism, let there be no misunderstanding as to its high importance and its complete integrity. […] I would like to assure him that the New York City Ballet has done more for the artistic prestige of his country than a carload of crooners, ten years’ run of musicals, a high powered comedian and a million reels of Hollywood celluloid all added together.”

—Arnold L. Haskell, Ballet Annual, 1951
