This special one-time-only program brings together three of the winter repertory’s heavy-hitters: the quintessential contemporary ballet Agon and the highly-stylized narrative Orpheus, two of Stravinsky and Balanchine’s “Greek” collaborations, along with Jerome Robbins’ epic sneaker ballet N.Y. Export: Opus Jazz, a breathless reflection on the fleeing joys of youth.

Location:
David H. Koch Theater
Running Time:
2 hrs. 8 min.

    An iconic Balanchine work that was part of NYCB’s inaugural performance in 1948, this highly-stylized, narrative ballet depicts Orpheus’ journey to rescue his beloved Eurydice from the underworld.

  • N.Y. Export: Opus Jazz

    • Music by: Robert Prince
    • Choreography by: Jerome Robbins

    N.Y. Export: Opus Jazz was choreographed only a year after the landmark West Side Story opened on Broadway — the dancers in this ballet in sneakers evoke a post-war New York City with their cool jazz moves and angst-ridden beats.
