Lineage (New Davis/Liang)
This Bitter Earth (Richter, Otis/Wheeldon)
New Peck (Muhly)
New Roberts (Preston) – World Premiere
A world premiere from a choreographer making his New York City Ballet debut – Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater’s Jamar Roberts – joins three other recent works on this program highlighting fresh voices. The latest ballet from Justin Peck, set to a score from acclaimed composer Nico Muhly and first seen in the winter season, joins Christopher Wheeldon’s lyrical pas de deux This Bitter Earth, danced to a Max Richter remix of Dinah Washington’s recording of the title song, and the return of Lineage from Edwaard Liang.
