The program also included George Balanchine’s Tarantella and an excerpt from Western Symphony, as well as Jerome Robbins’ I’m Old Fashioned.

Sarah Jessica Parker, newly elected to the New York City Ballet board of directors, served as the event’s honorary chairman, with Maria-Cristina Anzola, Jane Carroll, Barbara Evans, and Carol A. Smith as event chairmen. Candace Bushnell, Gilles Mendel, Princess Firyal of Jordan, Lesley Stahl, Anne Bass, Alba & Francesco Clemente, Fe Fendi, Charlotte Moss, Peter Gelb, Peter Martins & Darci Kistler, Carol and Earle Mack, Bob and Veronique Pittman, Allison Sarofim and Benjamin Millepied.
