Seizing the momentum of the Here/Now Festival, the 2017 Spring Gala features a world premiere from Alexei Ratmansky, joining his four preceding works for the Company, also onstage during the four-week festival.
With a poker table backdrop for dancers dressed as playing cards, the whimsical Jeu de Cartes pairs fleet-footed choreography with Stravinsky's boisterous and wildly rhythmic score.
Full of heartfelt emotion, this simple yet stirring pas de deux leaves audiences in silent awe.
A virtuosic ballet, Tschaikovsky Pas de Deux is brief, beautiful, and beloved – an adrenaline rush for both dancers and audiences.
Critics have acclaimed Alexei Ratmansky’s NYCB works as resounding hits and in Spring 2017 he’ll be inspired again by the Company’s versatile dancers.
