Why See New York City Ballet: All Balanchine - Winter?
The iconic George Balanchine
NYCB present another not-to-be-missed tribute to their legendary patriarch. This Winter 2017 program contains three of Balanchine's works, and is will be a sure treat for fans of the man or his beloved company.
A fusion of folk dance and classical ballet set to Corelli and Vivaldi, this work is a prime example of Balanchine's innovation within the artform. Premiered in 1957, it boils the traditional square dance down to its elements as only Balanchine could.
A woman dances with death in this haunting mood piece, capturing beautifully the sense of impending doom which permeates Ravel's music.
Created as a farewell for NYCB principal dancer Melissa Hayden, who had spent two decades with the company, Cortege Hongrois draws its inspiration from Petipa's Raymonda for its stately procession of dance.
Opening night: 5 October 2017
