Tschaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 2 (Tschaikovsky/Balanchine)
The Company honors the centennial of the birth of the great American modern dance choreographer Merce Cunningham with a revival of his fluid, shimmering Summerspace, an expansive work for just six dancers, which made its New York City Ballet debut in 1966 and has not been seen since 2000. Accompanying this rare revival are two Balanchine masterworks, both set to Tschaikovsky: the luminous Serenade, the first ballet he created in America, and the sumptuous Tschaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 2.
