An exciting compilation of Powerful Pieces
The New York City Ballet's first Classic series includes two dynamic and mesmerizing shows from founding choreographer George Balanchine, Jerome Robbins' charming A Suite of Dances and a much-anticipated tribute to Leonard Bernstein from Justin Peck.
Romantic and fleeting, Balanchine's swoon-worthy 1967 work twirls to a waltz by Mikhail Glinka, thought to be inspired by Chopin.
A Suite of Dances
A Robbins classic and emblematic of his love for Bach, this humorous yet thoughtful work first created for Mikhail Baryshnikov. By adding the solo cellist to the stage, the dancer and musician work in tandem.
New Peck 2
One of the most interesting and sought after new voices in choreography, Peck will delight with a new piece that pays tribute to Leonard Bernstein on his centennial.
Set to a swirling score of American folk tunes, Balanchine casts his dancers as cowboys and saloon girls in this highly entertaining visit to the old west.
