Why See New York City Ballet - 21st Century Choreographers II?
The Future Of Modern Ballet
The second in an exciting trio of programmes, each celebrating some of the most formidable and in demand choreographers of our century. The series includes works from those who helped bring ballet into the 21st century to those who work to push its boundaries even further. This instalment is comprised of pieces from the NYCB's resident choreographer Justin Peck, former resident choreographer Christopher Wheeldon and Alexei Ratmansky, current artist in residence at the American Ballet Theatre.
One of Peter Martins' most choreographed and popular short works, this racing ruby toned romp fuses the music of American composer John Adams with the pulsating beat of electronica as the company twirl through a vibrant series of steps with aerobic precision.
Created in 2008 by young Russian Ballet Master Alexei Ratmansky to Dimitri Shostakovich's Piano Concerto No. 2, Concerto DCSH is a thrilling ride through a range of emotions, where wave upon wave of wonder, awe, suspense and surprise breaks over audience and dancers alike.
This Bitter Earth
A moving pas de deux, Christopher Wheeldon's This Bitter Earth never fails to disappoint as the two dancers move hypnotically to the soulful sound of Dinah Washington, as imagined by Max Richter.
Eye-catching costumes by Tsumori Chisato accompany Justin Peck's witty work that takes it cue from commedia del 'arte to a score from NYCB icon Stravinsky.
