Balanchine's Breathtaking, Stripped-down Masterpiece

Balanchine's Black & White piece is 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.

The program includes:

The Four Temperaments

An ageless piece in the NYCB's repertoire, The Four Temperaments marked a turning point in modern ballet. Bold, revolutionary and musical, Balanchine's response to Hindemith's score is breathtaking and fresh to this day.

Episodes

A four-part Avant-garde piece inspired by Anton von Webern's orchestral compositions.

Agon

Described as 'the apex of his collaborations with Stravinsky', Agon is a contemporary masterpiece filled with athleticism and technical prowess.
