I'm looking forward to a new ballet NYCB will be presenting this winter.
    And that new ballet is coming up. It's to Peter Ablinger's Voices and Piano. Should be interesting.

    The same program will include a wonderful ballet to short piano works by Ligeti.

    (By the way - in my self-quote - that should have been "heavily researched.")
