It continues to amaze me that the NY TImes is actually spending money to send Mr. Macaulay to these performances. His tastes in ballet don't run to anything choreographed since about 1970, and he makes that painfully obvious in his semi-sarcastic reviews. It's FAR past time to promote one of the younger, more interested critics on staff, and actually publish reviews that are of relevance to current generation.

We wonder why we're having a hard time getting younger audiences into the ballet - well, it doesn't help to have anything that's remotely new or innovative shredded by crotchety old reviewers. Sheez.

Crotchety old reviewers eh? I would never have imagined that I would encounter such rampant ageism here. What the hell does a reviewers age have to do with the ability to give an opinion on a ballet?

Perhaps it's time for this crotchety old reviewer to dodder off into the sunset.

Ageism -Sheez.

The number of people who read and are influenced by reviews seems very small. As most reviewers have not been dancers or choreographers they don't know as much as the people or works they are commenting on - their writing is just a expression of their personal taste which most people don't really follow in making a decision whether to buy a ticket or not. Those that don't write for money are doing so for what reason ? Vanity perhaps.
