Why See New York City Ballet: Here and Now No. 6?
the here/now festival continues
Color and the emotional spectrum are the order of the day in New York City Ballet's sixth part of their Here/Now festival, featuring the charm of Christopher Wheeldon's adaptation of Carousel and the wistful beauty of Binet's The Blue of Distance.
Carousel (A Dance)
Choreographed by Christopher Wheeldon
Music by Rodgers
Fresh from his successful Broadway adaptation of An American in Paris, the New York City Ballet revive Wheeldon's first flirtation with The Great White Way, created way back in 2002.
The Blue of Distance
Choreographed by Robert Binet
Music by Ravel
Three couples are watched by a lone male soloist in this poetic piece that inspires feelings of longing and bittersweet isolation.
The Infernal Machine
Choreographed by Peter Martins
Music by Rouse
Kinetic and athletic, Peter Martins' Infernal Machine is a masterclass in pas de deux, set to a buzzing score.
Pictures at an Exhibition
Choreographed by Alexi Ratmansky
Music by Mussorgsky
The vivid watercolors of Wassily Kandinsky provide both the backdrop and the inspiration for Ratmansky's exploration of human emotion, veering from feral to soulful.
Year of the Rabbit
Choreographed by Justin Peck
Music by Stevens
Intricate and taking a cue from architectural geometry, Peck's second work for the company is backed by the electronic tones of Sufjan Stevens piece, based on the constant cycle of the Chinese New Year.
