About

The Washington Ballet
Julie Kent, Artistic Director
BALANCHINE + ASHTON
Featuring The Washington Ballet Orchestra


From a lively and jazzy Broadway production to divine elegance, witness bellwether ballets by 20th century dance titans George Balanchine and Sir Frederick Ashton. BALANCHINE + ASHTON provides a mixed repertoire of styles and opposites that are still relevant to today’s audiences. Ashton’s Birthday Offering and Balanchine’s Slaughter on Tenth Avenue are both company premieres. Balanchine’s exuberant and athletic Allegro Brillante and the somber Méditation for Thaïs, one of Ashton’s more sublime and legato creations, round out the program.
