BALANCHINE BLACK & WHITE I

  • Concerto Barocco

    • Music by: Johann Sebastian Bach
    • Choreography by: George Balanchine
    • Principal Casting:
      January 29, 31 Eve: Teresa Reichlen, Sara Mearns, Ask la Cour
      February 5, 7 Eve: Maria Kowroski, Savannah Lowery*, Tyler Angle (*first time in role)

    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.
