Apr. 2, 3 & 7, explore a program blending masters of the past with bright lights of the future. Choreographer Gianna Reisen’s Composer’s Holiday is set to Lukas Foss’s Three American Pieces, for violin and piano. George Balanchine’s Kammermusik No. 2 echoes Hindemith’s modernist score with jagged lines and stylized gestures, while Symphony in C—his grand classical masterpiece performed to Bizet—dazzles with over 50 dancers. Set to Prokofiev’s feverish concerto, Jerome Robbins’s Opus 19/ The Dreamer follows a male protagonist on a journey to find his elusive counterpart.

Apr. 4–6, two Kennedy Center premieres, created for the centennial of Jerome Robbins, include a Justin Peck work set to the music of Leonard Bernstein, and Tony®-winning choreographer/director Warren Carlyle’s Something to Dance About, featuring notable dance sequences from On the Town, West Side Story, and more. Also by Robbins, In the Night features three couples of distinct personality set to four of Chopin’s elegant nocturnes. An additional work from the company’s 2018–2019 season will be announced at a later date.
