New York City Ballet has long been the home of innovative, neoclassical choreography. The company is built on the ballets of George Balanchine who reinvented ballet in his new country. Serenade, Agon, and Symphony in C are three of his new classics, but NYCB doesn't rely solely on its great Balanchine repertory. Under Ballet Master in Chief Peter Martins, NYCB has consistently given new choreographers a chance. Its repertory includes works by Christopher Wheeldon, Alexei Ratmansky, and new resident choreographer Justin Peck, as well as Martins himself. Can a company keep its repertory new while still retaining its style and identity?
Performance Timing: 90 minutes, with no intermission.
