Opus 19/The Dreamer (Prokofiev)
Dances at a Gathering (Chopin)
Glass Pieces (Glass)
Three of Robbins’ most celebrated ballets unite to demonstrate his keen musical insight. Prokofiev’s feverish concerto send a male protagonist on a dreamlike search for an ethereal counterpart, and Chopin’s piano works allow the spectrum of human interaction to be distilled into the most natural of movements. Seizing upon more modern styles, Glass’s minimalism mimics the pulsating heartbeat of metropolitan life in charged, urban choreography.
