The dancers pull this off with aplomb, throwing themselves into the choreography and Bernstein's voluptuous score, but with a sense of amusement that keeps them, well, cool.

Why See New York City Ballet - Short Stories?

Bernstein, Balanchine, Robbins and Prokofiev

The New York City Ballet presents a dynamic program of works tied together by the art of dance and storytelling. The evening starts with the whimsy of Jerome Robbins and Leonard Bernstein's Fancy Free, a buoyant piece with a timeless story about sailors and their joy-filled escapades during shore-leave in New York. Evoking the sweeping romance of Broadway, Fancy Free would eventually become the classic musical On The Town.

The ultimate tale of redemption, the drama and thrills of Balanchine's Prodigal Son follow. Set to Prokofiev's soul-stirring, expressive score, the iconic choreographer's abstract movements marry a distinctly modern feel to the eternal themes of the biblical parable. The evening closes with a return to the works of Robbins and Bernstein in the West Side Story Suite, a distillation of the ever popular stage and film sensation filled with electric energy, frenetic jazz overtones and thrilling modern dance.
