Square Dance (Vivaldi, Corelli)
La Valse (Ravel)
Cortège Hongrois (Glazounov)
Three works, each stylized and rousing, exhibit Balanchine’s masterful yet subtle penchant for channeling cultural sensibilities, including a distillation of square dancing into fascinating patterns and effervescent spirit, a cavernous ballroom where a young woman both horrified and fascinated by her own vanity is seduced by the figure of Death, and a grand procession of classical dance.
FINAL PERFORMANCES: Principal Dancer Robert Fairchild will appear in Duo Concertant at the OCT 14 mat and 15 performances of the All Balanchine program.
