Dance and design are again united for the fall gala, which features three world premieres created by choreographers in close collaboration with some of fashion’s brightest lights. This year the renowned choreographers Matthew Neenan and Kyle Abraham will create their first ballets for NYCB, while Gianna Reisen, who in Fall 2017 became the youngest to ever create a ballet for the Company, returns with her second offering. Also appearing at subsequent performances of the program is Mauro Bigonzetti's brooding, shadow-strewn In Vento, commissioned by the Company in 2006.
