BALANCHINE BLACK & WHITE I

  • Monumentum pro Gesualdo

      June 1
      Teresa Reichlen, Abi Stafford, Justin Peck

    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.
