Raymonda Variations (Glazounov/Balanchine)
Variations Pour Une Porte et Un Soupir (Henry/Balanchine)
DGV: Danse A Grande Vitesse (Nyman/Wheeldon)
Two diverse ballets from Balanchine and one from the Company’s first resident choreographer, Christopher Wheeldon, display the breadth of dance styles in NYCB’s repertory. Balanchine’s Raymonda Variations is a bravura display of classical technique, with intricate solos strung along the music like a necklace of pearls. Variations pour une Porte et un Soupir, by contrast, finds Balanchine in experimental mode, with its unusual sound score and air of macabre mystery. DGV: Danse à Grand Vitesse is a large-scale ballet that mirrors the propulsive Michael Nyman score with dynamic rhythms.
