Like all art forms, ballet thrives on constant renewal and discovery, as this program amply demonstrates. Peter Martins’ Fearful Symmetries, set to a vibrant score by John Adams, dates to 1990, but the rest of the works here were created more recently: Christopher Wheeldon’s haunting pas de deux This Bitter Earth, danced to Dinah Washington’s recording of the titular song, Alexei Ratmansky’s pulsating Concerto DSCH, and Justin Peck’s playful Pulcinella Variations.

Location:
David H. Koch Theater
Running Time:
2 hrs. 6 min.
