Three unequivocal masterpieces honor Balanchine’s groundbreaking Black & White ballets. This modernly styled but classically grounded program displays a visual accompaniment to Bach’s double violin concerto, an athletic contest to complement Stravinsky’s dissonant sounds, and an angular exploration of Hindemith’s consuming moods.

Location:
David H. Koch Theater
Running Time:
2 hr
