HEAR THE DANCE: RUSSIA

  • Symphonic Dances

    • Music by: Sergei Rachmaninof
    • Choreography by: Peter Martins

    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

    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

    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

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