The Company's evolution through the commissioning new works is displayed in this program featuring ballets from three leading choreographers.

Pictures at an Exhibition (Mussorgsky/Ratmansky)

Like the ever-changing Wassily Kandinsky watercolors that set the stage, Pictures at an Exhibition’s ten dancers move in varying combinations to display a plethora of emotion, from raw and wild to solemn and soulful.

Oltremare (Moretti/Bigonzetti)

Brooding and intensely physical, Oltremare depicts the journey toward a new life with both its struggles and adrenaline-rising anticipation.

Rodeo: Four Dance Episodes (Copland/Peck)

A plotless take on Aaron Copland’s well known Americana score, Rodeo: Four Dance Episodes pairs a lone woman with a cast of 15 jocular, energetic, and charming male dancers for a fresh and thrilling adventure that audiences adore.

With its thrilling Shostakovich score and dramatic texture, Ratmansky’s acclaimed 2008 creation excels with classical ingenuity and contemporary stylishness.

All Balanchine – 04/30, 05/04 mat, 05/05, 05/24, 05/25 eve

Four works from Balanchine plumb the depths of an immense choreographic imagination inspired by striking music.

Scotch Symphony (Mendelssohn)

A scenic escapade in the Scottish Highlands, this charming Balanchine ballet features brisk footwork and a wistfully romantic pas de deux.

Le Tombeau de Couperin (Ravel)

Rooted in the court dances of 18th-century France, Le Tombeau de Couperin mesmerizes with its seamless patterns and symmetrical groupings of dancers.

Sonatine (Ravel)

The polished simplicity and emotional interplay of the rarely-seen Sonatine evoke the elegance of the French artists on which it was made.

Stravinsky Violin Concerto (Stravinsky)

The outer sections of Stravinsky Violin Concerto are carefully-woven masterpieces of symmetry that peel away to reveal two of Balanchine’s most ingenious and unique pas de deux.

Alternately noble and quixotic, Barber Violin Concerto contrasts a classical couple with a bare-footed couple as the worlds of ballet and modern dance collide.

Slaughter on Tenth Avenue (Rodgers, orch. by Kay/Balanchine)

An audience favorite with showbiz glam, Slaughter on Tenth Avenue is a vampy ballet about a jealous Russian premier danseur and his hoofing American rival.

Diamonds (Tschaikovsky/Balanchine)

The Times are Racing (Deacon/Peck)

A Midsummer Night`s Dream – 05/28/2019 to 06/02/2019

For ballet lovers, the return of A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a welcome rite of spring. In his distillation of Shakespeare’s comedy – the first full-length ballet Balanchine created – the choreographer captures all the mirth and merriment of the original. The turmoil of the young lovers, the tug of war between Oberon and Titania, and the Rude Mechanicals’ bumbling all combine to joyous effect in a ballet that perfectly expresses the season of regeneration.
