George Balanchine redefined classical ballet with his groundbreaking “black and white” canon, works that forego decorative costumes and sets to focus attention on music and movement.

  • Location:

  • David H. Koch Theater
  • Running Time:

  • 2 Hr. 27 Min.


  • The Four Temperaments

    • Music by: Paul Hindemith
    • Choreography by: George Balanchine

    An iconic "black and white" leotard ballet and NYCB signature work, the The Four Temperaments fuses classical steps with an angular and definitively modern style.

  • Episodes

    • Music by: Anton von Webern
    • Choreography by: George Balanchine

    Perhaps the most avant-garde of Balanchine's "black and white" ballets, this work uses Webern's edgy tones as the basis for a series of four arresting neoclassical interludes.

  • Duo Concertant

    • Music by: Igor Stravinsky
    • Choreography by: George Balanchine

    This lively dance for a couple, set to onstage piano and violin accompaniment, ends with a poignant play on light and shadow.

  • Symphony in Three Movements

    • Music by: Igor Stravinsky
    • Choreography by: George Balanchine

    Bold and breathtakingly jet-propelled, Symphony in Three Movements is a kinetic tour de force, striking for its simplicity and power.
