Spring 2017

The dynamism of The Four Temperaments and the sparkling Symphony in C usher in the Spring 2017 performances, highlighting the range of Balanchine’s neoclassical style. The spring continues with Jerome Robbins favorites Moves, a spellbinding ballet performed without music, and the playful Fancy Free, both illuminating the choreographer’s flair for the dramatic.

Contemporary ballets abound with the Here/Now Festival, four weeks devoted to works created at NYCB during the past three decades, featuring 43 ballets, 10 programs, and 2 world premieres. Alexei Ratmansky contributes his fifth work for NYCB at the Company’s 2017 Spring Gala and Resident Choreographer Justin Peck debuts his third collaboration with singer/songwriter Sufjan Stevens a week later. A momentous occasion, the festival showcases the creations of 22 diverse choreographers, and includes programs focusing on the work of Justin Peck, Alexei Ratmansky, and Christopher Wheeldon.

A longstanding springtime tradition, Balanchine's full-length production of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream closes the 2016-17 Season in a week-long run flooding the stage with its sumptuous sets and costumes.
