Like the ballet's ever changing Kandinsky backdrop, the ten dancers in Pictures at an Exhibition move in varying combinations while displaying a plethora of emotion, from raw and wild to soulful and potent.

Created for New York City Ballet during the fall of 2014, Pictures at an Exhibition is Alexei Ratmansky’s fifth work for the Company. Using the piano version of Modest Mussorgsky’s famed Pictures at an Exhibition, the ballet includes lighting design by Mark Stanley and projections of Wassily Kandinsky’s Color Study Squares with Concentric Circles, designed by Wendall K. Harrington. The 10 dancers are costumed in designs by fashion designer Adeline Andre, a frequent collaborator of Ratmansky.
