MASTERS AT WORK: BALANCHINE & ROBBINS

Piano Pieces (Tschaikovsky/Robbins)
Sylvia: Pas de Deux (Delibes/Balanchine)
 The Four Tempermants (Hindemith/Balanchine)

Comparative rarities from the Company’s founding choreographers lead off a program of vividly diverse ballets. Piano Pieces finds Jerome Robbins turning to a favorite Balanchine composer, Tschaikovsky, for one of the dance-maker’s last ballets. Balanchine’s Sylvia: Pas de Deux, returning to the repertory after a quarter century, features bravura steps originally created for great American ballerina Maria Tallchief, set to an excerpt from the titular Delibes ballet. Completing the evening is The Four Temperaments, Balanchine’s astringently compelling exploration of complex human emotion.
