Why See New York City Ballet: Stravinsky x Five?
Stravinsky's incredible work
Don't miss this quintet of works from essential New York City Ballet choreographers set to some Igor Stravinsky's most wonderful pieces As one of the 20th Century's greatest composers, his musical innovation and mastery of myriad styles has influenced many artists, perhaps most famously George Balanchine, with whom he collaborated for a number of years, becoming the very bedrock of the esteemed company.
Scenes de Ballet (Christopher Wheeldon)
62 students from the School of American Ballet mimic a rehearsal, perfecting their craft in an imaginary mirror in the second ballet Wheeldon created for the company.
The Cage (Jerome Robbins)
Animalistic and wild, the Cage explores the life of the female insect, their movements and motivations, especially those leading them to see their male equivalents as prey.
Eight Easy Pieces (Peter Martins)
Three female dancers perform a witty and charming routine as two pianos accompany them on stage.
Schezo Fantastique (Justin Peck)
New York Premiere: Details are scant on Peck's new work, only that it will likely be as brilliant as his work to date.
Stravinsky Violin Concerto (George Balanchine)
Perhaps the choreographer's most beloved pas de deux, this classical piece is essential for new fans and completists alike.
Opening night: 22 January 2017
