Why See New York City Ballet - Stravinsky & Balanchine?
Throughout out his long and iconic tenure with the New York City Ballet is typified not just by his innovative approach to choreography but with his lifelong affinity for Stravinsky and his incredible oeuvre. This extensive program celebrates their partnership, from the onstage musicians of Agon to the confidence and power of the young god Apollo. Let this recital take over your senses with its joy and mastery.
The duo's first collaboration, Apollo follows the eponymous god as he discovers his calling through the machinations of the muses of poetry, dance and mime. Describing it as a turning point in his career, it is a memorable neoclassical work that fuses mythology with contemporary ideals.
A veritable feast of Greek mythology featuring a cast of Furies, lost souls, Angels and more, this stylish ballet follows Orpheus as he journeys to the underworld to rescue Eurydice. First seen at the company's inaugural performance, it has become a popular, signature piece.
Taking a cue from 17th Century French court dances, this almost abstract piece sees dancers interact in many forms to create a memorable series of vignettes that intwine expertly with the music.

Cranston's wrenching performance stands on its own. In context, it's a terrifying reminder of how an all-too-human, anger-filled public figure, with access to a worldwide stage, can be mistaken for a god.
