"He helped to shape the New York City Ballet's creative profile with daring and brio for half a century through his often startling, always experimental choreography in ballet's classical idiom."
The New York Times
The New York City Ballet presents another breathtaking 'All Robbins' recital of two ballet works by ballet master and Broadway choreographer/director Jerome Robbins, each a brilliant example of the world-renowned choreographer's wit, creativity and prowess in dance. After setting the Great White Way alight with hits such as West Side Story, Gypsy and Fiddler on The Roof, Robbins dedicated himself to creating original dance works tailored to the New York City Ballet.
Set to music by Philip Glass, this is Robbins' tribute to the busy, sprawling metropolis. A pulsating core sees the dancers move through the city with postmodern choreography fused with more traditional technique.
With no score, costumes or sets, Moves is a highly intriguing and intense piece that demands the audience focus on their emotional connection to the sounds of the dancers as they navigate the action of the dance.
Featuring a cast of zany characters and set to Chopin, The Concert is a comedic ballet that delves into our reactions to live music, and the places we are taken to inside and outside our heads.
As above with the addition of Fancy Free, a riotous and hilarious work featuring three male dancers who play excitable sailors on shore leave, in the place of Glass Pieces.
