Haieff Divertimento (Haieff/Balanchine)
Rodeo: Four Dance Episodes (Copland/Peck)
To honor Paul Taylor, the American choreographer who passed away in the fall of 2018, the Company will present Balanchine’s neoclassical favorite Episodes incorporating the solo originally danced by Taylor, not included in performances since 1989. Also returning after an absence of more than two decades is Balanchine’s Haieff Divertimento, a charming dance for five couples originally created in 1947. Completing this eclectic program are Concertino, a pas de trois from Jerome Robbins danced to jazzy Stravinsky chamber pieces, and Justin Peck’s Rodeo: Four Dance Episodes, set to Aaron Copland’s celebrated score.
