New York City Ballet: La Sylphide

David H Koch Theater

February 12-18, 2016

NYCB's newest addition to its repertory is the wonderfully romantic and enduring Danish ballet master August Bournonville's La Sylphide. Artistic Director Peter Martins stages his 1985 interpretation that retains all of the original charm and appeal of the world's oldest surviving ballet.

Metropolitan Opera: Madama Butterfly

Metropolitan Opera House

February 19-April 12, 2016

Anthony Minghella's breathtakingly beautiful and powerfully dramatic production returns, with the lead roles of Cio-Cio San shared by Patricia Racette and Kristine Opolais, and the cruel Pinkerton sung by Massimo Giordano, Roberto Alagna, and Roberto De Biasio. Conducted by Karel Mark Chichon in his Met Opera debut, this work is widely known as the opera that inspired the Broadway musical Miss Saigon; the tragic story sees a young Japanese bride abandoned by her American husband for a new wife back home.

New York City Ballet: Classic NYCB

David H Koch Theater

February 19, 2016

Banish the winter blues with this bumper program from the New York City Ballet including works from George Balanchine, Christopher Wheeldon and current Artistic Director Peter Martins.

New York City Ballet: Balanchine Black & White

David H Koch Theater

February 24-28, 2016

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.

American Ballet Theatre: Romeo and Juliet

Metropolitan Opera House

June 20-25, 2016

Sir Kenneth MacMillan's interpretation of Shakespeare's enduring romantic tragedy has become one of ABT's signature productions. The story of Verona's tragic star-crossed lovers is weaved throughout a rich dance tapestry, with Renaissance Italy providing an elegant and period-perfect background. The original production starred Margot Fonteyne and Rudolf Nuryev in the lead roles, making it one of ballet's most enduring and culturally important productions, with Leslie Browne dancing as Juliet opposite Robert La Fosse as her Romeo in this revival
