Seizing the momentum of the Here/Now Festival, the 2017 Spring Gala features a world premiere from Alexei Ratmansky, joining his four preceding works for the Company, also onstage during the four-week festival.
With a poker table backdrop for dancers dressed as playing cards, the whimsical Jeu de Cartes pairs fleet-footed choreography with Stravinsky's boisterous and wildly rhythmic score.
Full of heartfelt emotion, this simple yet stirring pas de deux leaves audiences in silent awe.
A virtuosic ballet, Tschaikovsky Pas de Deux is brief, beautiful, and beloved – an adrenaline rush for both dancers and audiences.
Ratmansky’s fifth NYCB work is set to “Sketches to Sunset,” a collection of incidental pieces composed by fellow Russian Leonid Desyatnikov for the 1990 film Sunset, including a mix of tango and klezmer music.
