NYCB Vol. 5 No. 36 - Nutcracker

[36/60] "In the beginning, there was Tchaikovsky; maybe there still is. 'I always have an idea he is so happy because we do it right,' George Balanchine says, with the tense—present, not past—being a sign that the composer is sharing a communion of genius with the choreographer."

— John Corry, New York Times, 1980
