Welcome to the 19-20 Season

This season brings 54 stunning works across 22 programs in a robust collection of choreography.

A generous offering of world premieres come from Principal Dancer Lauren Lovette, former NYCB Soloist and current BalletMet Artistic Director Edwaard Liang, Resident Choreographer Justin Peck, American Ballet Theatre Artist in Residence Alexei Ratmansky, acclaimed NY-based choreographer Pam Tanowitz, and Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater dancer and Resident Choreographer Jamar Roberts.
Paying homage to the legacies of those passed, the Company marks Merce Cunningham’s centennial this fall with his Summerspace, and George Balanchine’s Episodes returns in the winter featuring the solo originally performed by the late dance-maker Paul Taylor. Additional revivals include Balanchine’s Sylvia: Pas de Deux, Robbins’ Piano Pieces, and Wheeldon’s DGV: Danse à Grande Vitesse.
Framing the season is a trio of Company classics: the perennially adored three-part masterwork Jewels, the bewitching tragedy Swan Lake, and the celebrated springtime frolic A Midsummer Night’s Dream to close out the season.
