Joffrey Ballet - Romeo & Juliet

Until April 2, 2017

Worlds collide in The Joffrey Ballet's re-telling of Shakespeare's masterpiece. Pitched against an ever-changing landscape some of the 20th Century's most intriguing political eras, the universal tale of star-crossed lovers from the wrong backgrounds proves that the show will go on, regardless of the shifting of time.

New York City Ballet: All Balanchine - Spring

April 18-23, 2017

NYCB present another not-to-be-missed tribute to their legendary patriarch. With Spring 2017's program containing three of Balanchine's works, including the monumental spectacle of Symphony in C, these presentations will be a sure treat for fans of the man or his beloved company.

New York City Ballet: Here and Now No. 1 - Wheeldon

April 25-29, 2017

This pure celebration of New York City Ballet's own wunderkind Christopher Wheeldon sees the company take on three of his best-known works, nicely climaxing with American Rhapsody, his newest piece set to the romantic music of Gershwin.

New York City Ballet: Namouna, A Grand Divertissement

April 26-29, 2017

An ambitious reworking by star choreographer Alexei Ratmansky, A Grand Divertissement is originally based on the fairytale ballet from Edouard Lalo in the 19th century. Split up from the narrative story form, the work is divided into separate witty and animated vignettes, designed for a large company and its seven main dancers. Taking apart what Ratmansky described as the "Most cliched of ballets" and giving it a playful spin brings a more uplifting arc to proceedings, involving a young man searching for his love, Namouna.

New York City Ballet: Here and Now No. 3 - Peck

April 27-May 3, 2017

For their third presentation of the Here/Now festival, New York City Ballet pay tribute to their Resident choreographer, one of the company's youngest ever, the inimitable Justin Peck. In this, the first full Peck program by company, expect to be dazzled by some of his best-known works, including the geometric In Creases, the bold New Blood, Sufjan Stevens scored Everywhere We Go alongside a brand new piece, his first ever for just two dancers.
