During the weeklong appearance, New York City Ballet will perform seven of Balanchine’s most enduring masterpieces. The repertory will include Apollo (1928), the oldest Balanchine work in NYCB’s repertory; Prodigal Son (1929), his powerful depiction of the biblical parable; Serenade (1934), the first ballet Balanchine choreographed after arriving in the United States; the dazzling Concerto Barocco (1941), set to Bach’s Concerto in D minor for Two Violins; Symphony in C (1947), one of his most beloved works; Tschaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 2 (1941), a ballet that demands virtuosity from its dancers; and Jewels (1967), Balanchine’s three-act abstract ballet.

March 4 evening and 6 matinee: Concerto Barocco, Prodigal Son, and Tschaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 2
