Classic Pieces From the Fathers of Modern Ballet

Catch the NYCB doing what they do best in this evening of modern ballet classics. It'll be a quadruple bill of audience favorites, comprised of three beloved Balanchine pieces (Serenade, Duo Concertant and Western Symphony) and Peter Martins' Hallelujah Junction.


Reported to be his first piece written in the US, Serenade is a breathtaking showcase of Balanchine's affinity for Tchaikovsky blended with his signature pioneering neoclassical style, where intricate footwork and raw emotion meets.

Hallelujah Junction

Balanchine's NYCB peer Peter Martins' Hallelujah Junction is a stripped back yet elegantly compelling piece consisting of a principle couple, a male soloist and a small corps de ballet. Martins choreographed this work to John William's composition of the same name.

Duo Concertant

The neoclassical style of Stravinsky's composition for piano and violin provides the perfect score to Balanchine's spirited dance for two.

Western Symphony

Set to traditional American Folk Music arranged by Hershy Kay, Balanchine's Western Symphony is a tribute to the Wild West, complete with cowboys, dancing girls. Classic ballet technique is combined with folk dancing for a rousing, high-energy conclusion to the evening.
