What are the TOP 10 ballet quotes by Robert Caro?

  1. The ballet embodies the notes of music. And sometimes you almost feel like you can see the notes dance up there on the stage.

  2. At the ballet, you really feel like you're in the presence of something outside the rest of your life. Higher than the rest of your life.

  3. Ballet is sort of a mystery to me. And I don't want to unravel that mystery.

  4. Everything seems to be going faster and faster. It's really harder to create something that endures. The New York City Ballet has succeeded in doing that.

  5. I deliberately made an effort not to become an expert on the ballet.

  6. I like new ballets because they're totally new. As you get older, new experiences are harder and harder to come by, so it's pretty great to have a new experience.

  7. I never went to a ballet until I was 45 years old. I don't know why.

  8. Sometimes during a ballet I'll look around and see all these rows of intent faces, concentrating on this beautiful thing up on the stage.

  9. The moment the curtain rose on that first ballet, I knew something wonderful and new had come into my life. I can still see the first scene. The ballet was Divertimento No. 15.

  10. The New York City Ballet is obviously speaking to a whole new generation and bringing it the same wonder and beauty that it brought previous generations.
