Works by well-known contemporary choreographers plus the 2014 Art Series collaborator
The first in this three-part series celebrating the most formidable choreographers of our century. The series encompasses those who helped bring ballet into the 21st century to those who work to push its boundaries even further. Programme One features the works of well-known and in demand contemporary choreographers Christopher Wheeldon, Alexei Ratmansky and Justin Peck.
English Royal Ballet alumnus and choreographer Christopher Wheeldon brings you an Argentine romance that evokes the rural beauty of the rolling hills and tumultuous young love. Created specially for the NYCB, the piece is a refreshing take on composer Alberto Ginastera's orchestral suite and one-act ballet.
Former director of the Bolshoi Ballet and current artist in residence at the American Ballet Theatre, Alexei Ratmansky created the dreamlike choreography that accompanies Romantic Russian Composer Modest Mussorgsky's famous suite Pictures At An Exhibition.
NYCB soloist and resident choreographer Justin Peck presents his largest work yet. Comprised of nine pieces and 25 dancers, the epic explores the depths of singer songwriter Sufjan Steven's first commissioned orchestral score.
