New York City Ballet: American Music

This landmark 1958 ballet has dancers swapping pointe shoes for sneakers as a defiant parade of frustrated teens as society shakes off the struggles of WWII and ushers in a brave new world.

The New York City Ballet's first Classic series of 2016 includes two dynamic and mesmerising shows from founding choreographer George Balanchine; the first, Tchaikovsky Pas De Deux, is a short burst of kinetic energy described as "an adrenaline rush for both dancers and audiences". Based on the famous Black Swan Pas De Deux, it's a thrilling eight minute display of masterful technique and technical brilliance.

New York City Ballet: All Robbins

May 11-15, 2016

The New York City Ballet presents another breathtaking 'All Robbins' recital of two ballet works by ballet master and Broadway choreographer/director Jerome Robbins, each a brilliant example of the world-renowned choreographer's creativity and prowess in dance.

New York City Ballet: A Midsummer Night's Dream

May 24-29, 2016

A ballet about the transforming power of love, George Balanchine's A Midsummer Night's Dream, is based on William Shakespeare's comedy about the romantic adventures and misadventures, quarrels and reunitings, of two pairs of mortal lovers and the king and queen of the fairies.
