Circus Polka (Stravinsky/Robbins)
New Peck 2 (Bernstein) – World Premiere
Something to Dance About (New Bernstein, Bock, Gould, Rodgers, and Styne/Robbins, direction and musical staging by Carlyle) – World Premiere
The Four Seasons (Verdi/Robbins)
A fitting gift to Jerome Robbins, the Company will debut two world premieres animated by the master choreographer’s legacy: a 40-minute ballet directed by Warren Carlyle featuring extracts of eight Robbins-choreographed musicals and a Justin Peck piece with a Leonard Bernstein score. Accompanying the festivities are two lighthearted ballets: Circus Polka features a sprightly carousel of young students as they prance at the beck and call of a dapper ringmaster, and The Four Seasons translates Verdi's vibrant melodies into frosty flirtation, springtime awakening, sultry revelry, and autumnal bacchanal.
