About

New York City Ballet
“A whirlwind of exhilaration… is any other ballet company as fit and athletic as this one?”—The Washington Post
with the Kennedy Center Opera House Orchestra

The company’s powerhouse dancers continue to enrich an ever-expanding repertory brimming with works by ballet legends and today’s most exciting innovators.
 
Balanchine, Wheeldon, and a New Work (Mar. 31 and Apr. 1 & 5)
This program includes two works by George Balanchine: Haieff Divertimento combines blues and American dance idioms with modern concert dance and classic ballet, while Stravinsky Violin Concerto peels away outer layers of symmetry to reveal two ingenious pas de deux. In Christopher Wheeldon’s Liturgy, set to music by Arvo Pärt, two dancers separate and re-connect with ever-increasing intensity. The company also brings a brand-new piece from its 2019 season.

Peck, Cunningham, and Balanchine/Robbins (Apr. 2–4)
Justin Peck’s entrancing Principia, set to a score for full orchestra, is a collaboration with Oscar®-nominated composer Sufjan Stevens. For the centennial of Merce Cunningham, the company performs Summerspace with music by Morton Feldman; the late choreographer envisioned movement “like the passage of birds, stopping for moments on the ground and then going on.” Balanchine and Jerome Robbins’s ever-popular masterpiece Firebird, set to Stravinsky’s score, illustrates the fantastical Russian fairy tale.
