Why See New York City Ballet - All Balanchine I?
More Balanchine Brilliance
NYCB present their second homage to the legendary choreographer in the company's much anticipated 2018/19 season. Containing four of Balanchine's works, this evening is not to be missed by any fan of the man or his beloved company.
The romance and awe-inspiring beauty of the Scottish highlands is evoked in this piece that marries Balachine's own impressions of the country after 1952's Edinburgh Festival with Felix Mendelssohn's famed tribute to his own moving trip in 1829.
Le Tombeau de Couperine
Be transported back to the Baroque elegance of the 18th Century French court with Balanchine's hypnotic, symmetrical couples as set to Ravel's solemn yet hopeful music from which the piece takes its title.
Rarely performed, this Ravel scored piece is iInspired by the elegance of French artists. Delicate but playful, it displays a polished simplicity and emotion, alongside Balanchine's meticulous style.
Stravinsky Violin Concerto
First used for Balanchine's Balustrade but repurposed when he discovered he'd forgotten the steps, this 1972 classic was the gem of the Stravinsky Festival and no retrospective of Balanchine or Stravinsky is complete without it.
Opening night: 30 April 2019

This is theatrical storytelling so assured and involving it's hard to imagine anyone not being mesmerized.
Such a joyful hoot. With its kinetic dancing, broad mugging and belty anthems, it makes you believe in musical comedy again.
