New York City Ballet: Balanchine Black & White

New York City Ballet: American Music

October 4-16, 2016

Led by the frenetic urban energy of Jerome Robbins' Glass Pieces, the NYCB's annual celebration of Americana continues apace this year. Alongside Robbins' tribute to the metropolis is Thou Swell, a glittering work, harking back to the glamorous cafe society of the golden age with its art deco flourishes and romantic Richard Rodgers score. Finishing the evening is George Balanchine's patriotically triumphant Stars and Stripes, a delightfully All-American feast, with exuberant dancers filling the stage, resplendent in Karinska's eye-catching costumes.

New York City Ballet: Classic NYCB

October 7-12, 2016

Another round of pieces from the New York City Ballet's archives, the Classic NYCB program is a chance to reinvigorate the company's enviable repertoire, whilst presenting newer works that will no doubt be considered classics themselves in time.

American Ballet Theatre: The Brahms-Haydn Variations

October 19-23, 2016

Last seen in ABT's 75th anniversary gala last year, The Brahms-Haydn Variations, a dazzling large-cast classical ballet from award-winning choreographer Twyla Tharp, incorporating the music Variations on a Theme by Haydn for Orchestra. With dancers arranged in a powerful choreographic counterpoint, the ensuing vision that fills the stage looks just like a kaleidoscope of action.
