Three Performances Only! The brilliant next chapter of Tour-de-Force, a gala-style program of provocative, engaging, and showstopping classical and contemporary ballets. George Balanchine's Theme and Variations, the evening's centerpiece, evokes the great period in classical dance when Russian ballet flourished with the aid of Tchaikovsky's music. With only three performances, Tour-de-Force is a season highlight not to be missed.
Performance Timing: Part One - 21 min.; Intermission - 15 min.; Part Two - 54 min.
