BALANCHINE SHORT STORIES

  • La Sonnambula

    • Music by: Vittorio Rieti
    • Choreography by: George Balanchine, staged by John Taras

    Deceit, desire, and death shadow La Sonnambula's aristocratic masked ball, entertaining with its fanciful divertissements and haunting with the image of a somber sleepwalker and the tragedy following in her wake.

  • Prodigal Son

    • Music by: Sergei Prokofiev
    • Choreography by: George Balanchine

    The ultimate story of sin and redemption, Prodigal Son's powerful message, expressive score, and dramatic movement make it eternally impactful.

  • Slaughter on Tenth Avenue

    • Music by: Richard Rodgers, orchestrated by Hershy Kay
    • Choreography by: George Balanchine

    Set in a seedy strip club, Slaughter on Tenth Avenue is a vampy Broadway ballet about a jealous Russian premier danseur and his hoofing American rival.
