Why See New York City Ballet - Robbins 100?
Celebrating Jerome Robbin's 100th Birthday
A true visionary, Jerome Robbins' artistic genius shaped the face of classical ballet, leaving a legacy that would echo throughout modern dance, Broadway theatre, film and television. One hundred years to the day, the New York City Ballet celebrates the vibrant creative legacy of founder, marking his birthday on August 11th 2018 with a three-day program of the creative powerhouse's best loved works.
Celebrations kick off with Robbin's stunning pas de deux Afternoon of a Faun, a depiction of a passionate chance encounter set to the music of Debussy. The choreographer's tribute to the romance of Chopin follows in Other Dances, a pas de deux steeped in classical and and folk-inspired movement. Things take a turn for the radical in Moves, a groundbreaking ensemble piece in which their is no music, scenery or costumes. The evening closes with the premiere of Something To Dance About, a brand new work by Warren Carlyle that fuses together excerpts from Robbin's beloved Broadway musicals.
Opening night: 11 October 2018

Bernadette Peters's is a gentler event, one of endearingly zany charms and touching warmth. She's the polish on Midler's brass.
