BALANCHINE BLACK & WHITE I

  • Monumentum pro Gesualdo

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

    Known for its plush refinement, this streamlined leotard ballet arrests viewers with its formal beauty and simplicity.

  • Movements for Piano and Orchestra

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

    A signature leotard ballet, Movements for Piano and Orchestra's dissonance and electric currents sweep on a wave of exacting precision.

  • Concerto Barocco

    • Music by: Johann Sebastian Bach
    • Choreography by: George Balanchine

    One of Balanchine’s greatest masterpieces, Concerto Barocco is music made visible as two elegant yet dynamic lead ballerinas each depict one of the instrumental soloists in a virtuosic double violin concerto.

  • Episodes

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

    Perhaps the most avant-garde of Balanchine’s Black & White ballets, Episodes uses Webern's edgy tones as the basis for a series of four arresting scenes.
     

  • The Four Temperaments

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

    Referencing the medieval concept of psychological humors, The Four Temperaments is classically grounded but definitively modern movement.
