CLASSIC NYCB

CLASSIC NYCB I


  Raymonda Variations (Glazounov/Balanchine)
  Morgen (R. Strauss/Martins)
  N.Y. Export: Opus Jazz (Prince/Robbins)



This quintessential program features works by the three choreographers that are most closely associated with NYCB's celebrated repertory. Raymonda Variations is a flurry of ballet technique featuring a series of impressive solos at its center. Morgen's three couples drift through a lakeside scene dancing a series of romantic pas de deux accented by complex turns and daring lifts, while exchanging partners in their search for romance. The dancers take off their pointe shoes and don sneakers for N.Y. Export: Opus Jazz, a reflection of the post-war era when city streets were bustling with teens moving to cool jazz and angst-ridden beats.

  Clearing Dawn (New Greenstein/Schumacher)
Varied Trio (in four) (New Harrison/Frohlich)
This Bitter Earth (Washington, Richter/Wheeldon)
  The Goldberg Variations (Bach/Robbins)

Combining contemporary works with a Robbins classic, this chamber program is a diverse dance event. Fall 2014 premieres from Liam Scarlett, Troy Schumacher, and Ballet Master Jean-Pierre Frohlich return for this special evening, along with Christopher Wheeldon’s pas de deux to Dinah Washington’s soulful rendition of “This Bitter Earth.” The one-time-only program also includes the season’s last chance to see Robbins’ The Goldberg Variations with its varying permutations of ballet, a contrast of traditional and modern movement within itself.
