Why See New York City Ballet - Bach, Barber & Broadway?
An Evening Of Contrasts, Dynamism and Poise
Experience the kinetic contrast of the classical and the modern in this dynamic program of Bach, Barber and Broadway presented by the New York City Ballet. The evening's performances begin with the wildly popular Bradenberg Concertos, Jerome Robbin's last ever work for the NYCB. Inspired by four of Bach's Bradenburg pieces, Robbins created an adventurous collage of form and structure with a series of contrasting pas de deux, conveying a range of atmospheres from reverent stillness to joyful buoyancy.
This is followed buy Peter Martin's romantic choreography of Samuel Barber's Violin Concerto, a work of juxtapositions that begins soulfully soft before gathering pace for its lightning-fast finale. Pairing one couple of classical dancers and one bare-footed couple of modern dancers, the work collides the two worlds with stunning results. The evening closes with perennial favorite Slaughter On Tenth Avenue, Balanchine's Broadway ballet-within-a-musical that fuses the vamp and vim of showbiz with the booze-soaked tale of a Russian premier dancer and his American rival.
