HEAR THE DANCE: RUSSIA

  • Symphonic Dances

    • Music by: Sergei Rachmaninof
    • Choreography by: Peter Martins
    • Principal Casting:
      January 21, 23, 27: Sterling Hyltin*, Andrew Veyette* (*first time in role)
      January 30 & February 1: Teresa Reichlen*, Zachary Catazaro* (*first time in role)

    Grounded by Rachmaninoff’s colorful melodies, Symphonic Dances alternates between powerful ensemble sections and wistful pas de deux for its lead couple.

  • The Cage

    • Music by: Igor Stravinsky
    • Choreography by: Jerome Robbins
    • Principal Casting:
      January 21, 23, 27: Lauren Lovette*, Savannah Lowery*, Craig Hall, Sean Suozzi (*first time in role)
      January 30 & February 1: Sterling Hyltin, Emily Kikta*, Justin Peck*, Sean Suozzi (*first time in role)

    The Cage plunges into the world of natural selection, using Stravinsky’s daring score to depict the feral instinct compelling the female of an insect species to consider its male counterpart as prey.

  • Andantino

    • Music by: Peter Ilyitch Tschaikovsky
    • Choreography by: Jerome Robbins
    • Principal Casting:
      January 21, 23, 27: Tiler Peck, Gonzalo Garcia
      January 30 & February 1: Ashley Bouder, Andrew Veyette

    Set to the lilting second movement of Tschaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1, Andantino is infused with a sense of sweetness and unforced drama.
     

  • Cortège Hongrois

    • Music by: Alexander Glazounov
    • Choreography by: George Balanchine

      January 30 & February 1: Maria Kowroski, Russell Janzen*, Brittany Pollack*, Megan LeCrone*, Georgina Pazcoguin*, Craig Hall (*first time in role)
       

    Mirroring Glazounov’s melding of nationalistic and classical idioms, Cortège Hongrois develops from a folk-stylized processional to a classical grand pas de deux.
