This diverse program brings together two Balanchine ballets – a classic and a rarity – and three works from contemporary choreographers. From Balanchine come the celebrated pas de deux Duo Concertant and Variations Pour une Porte et un Soupir, an inventive dance performed to a recorded sound score. They are joined by Mauro Bigonzetti’s darkly powerful In Vento, Christopher Wheeldon’s ever-entrancing After the Rain Pas de Deux, and Justin Peck’s exuberantly youthful The Times Are Racing.

David H. Koch Theater
Running Time:
2 hrs. 9 min.


  • In Vento

    • Music by: Bruno Moretti
    • Choreography by: Mauro Bigonzetti

    Set to a commissioned score by Bruno Moretti, In Vento is brooding and evocative.

  • After the Rain Pas de Deux

    • Music by: Arvo Pärt
    • Choreography by: Christopher Wheeldon

    Full of heartfelt emotion, this simple yet stirring pas de deux leaves audiences in silent awe. 

  • Variations pour une Porte et un Soupir

    • Music by: Pierre Henry
    • Choreography by: George Balanchine

    Translated as Variations for a Door and a Sigh, this avant-garde work presents a black-caped woman in the role of the Door, an imposing barrier to the male soloist who portrays the Sigh in a work that is Balanchine at his most experimental.

  • Duo Concertant

    • Music by: Igor Stravinsky
    • Choreography by: George Balanchine

    An animated dance for a neoclassical couple, the dancers periodically stop and listen to the onstage musicians before ending with a poignant scene in a pool of light on a dark stage.

  • The Times Are Racing

    • Music by: Dan Deacon
    • Choreography by: Justin Peck

    One of the most buzzed about premieres of 2017, The Times Are Racing is a sneaker ballet that sees its dancers in streetwear designed by Opening Ceremony, drawing inspiration from a variety of dance styles while matching Dan Deacon’s electronic score with youthful impulse and vigor.
