A Peter Martins Ballet Loses Peter Martins, and a Slap

Tuesday 21:52 GMT

With New York City Ballet in the throes of its most tumultuous season since George Balanchine’s death 35 years ago, several dozen company members gathered in a backstage studio at the David H. Koch Theater last week to do what they always do: dance, hard, in this instance while rehearsing Peter Martins’s “Romeo + Juliet.”

One thing was missing: Mr. Martins, who choreographed the ballet and had led the company as ballet master in chief since 1983, hiring all of its current dancers.
