"Yeah its stupid (maybe) that there is a matador ballet number at the Party - but thats whats in the score and libretto and lyrics."

I haven't yet seen this production, but can I assume there are no "gypsies" in the other ballet -- for obvious reasons? The dancers are of course referred to as gypsies in the libretto, so I can't imagine the word has been changed, but has the translation in the Met titles been changed to some other, less "offensive" word?

"A stunning, and moving, and modern Willy Decker production."

Well, I don't agree with that assessment :-)
