This eclectic program showcases Robbins’ versatility, allowing a range of emotions to pervade. Playful jazz accents suggest a chic Riviera setting, a chance encounter in a ballet studio captures two young dancers in a subtle and sensual pas de deux, and the sculptural forms of Greek antiquity inspire earthy fervor. A one-of-a-kind comedic ballet concludes the program, portraying a cast of quirky characters at a piano recital and their laugh-out-loud antics.

This performance also includes a See the Music segment, which turns the spotlight on the orchestra pit. The conductor or music director will discuss the score for The Concert through an orchestra demonstration before the ballet is performed.
