NYCB Vol. 9 No. 13 - Nutcracker

(13/50) “Diana Adams as the Sugar Plum Fairy is a vision of beauty, The act opens, in this version, with her variations from the grand pas de deux, which she dances with exquisite style, but when we come at last to the remainder of the pas de deux, she rises to genuine heights of lyric beauty. The phrasing, the awareness of form, the elegance of line, the sheer musicality, are incomparable.”

—John Martin, New York Times, 1960
