NEW YORK CITY BALLET: BALANCHINE BLACK & WHITE

Ended 8 Oct 2016 after 17 days

George Balanchine redefined classical ballet with his groundbreaking "black and white" canon

The NYCB

Closed 8 Oct 2016

unique and INGENIOUS

Balanchine's Black & White pieces are a groundbreaking presentation of neoclassical ballet which forgoes the elaborate costumes and sets synonymous with productions of the ballet master's calibre, to showcase his astounding musicality simply and succinctly. The work employs a blank canvas approach in order to emphasise the skill of his dancers and the beauty of the music which accompanies them.

Program

Stravinsky Violin Concerto
A masterful display of symmetry, the tightly woven score takes the audience on a breathtaking journey, before revealing two of the choreographer's most beloved and innovative Pas de Deux.

Monumentum Pro Gesualdo & Movments for Dance and Orchestra
Two works that have played together since 1966, the contrasting style of beauty and detailed continue to draw audiences.

Duo Concerto
Set to Stravinsky's piece for piano and violin, this duet dances between light and dark, encapsulating a simple beauty.

Symphony in Three Movements
Much lauded, this fine ballet is an exersize in kinetic movement and the confident strides required of the dancers.
