ROBBINS 100

  • Afternoon of a Faun

    • Music by: Claude Debussy

    Subtle, sensual, and narcissistic, Afternoon of a Faun depicts a chance encounter between two young dancers in a studio.

  • Other Dances

    • Music by: Frédéric Chopin

    Other Dances pays homage to Chopin’s romanticism and the purity of classical ballet technique, featuring two dramatic dancers in a series of short, folk-infused dances.

    Forgoing elaborate costumes, set design, and even musical accompaniment, Moves enthralls with the unexpected intensity derived from sounds produced by the dancers themselves.

    • Choreography by: Jerome Robbins, direction and musical staging by Warren Carlyle

    With famous song and dance selections drawn from nine landmark Broadway musicals, Warren Carlyle’s SOMETHING TO DANCE ABOUT Jerome Robbins, Broadway to Ballet shows the depth of Robbins’ influence on dance.
