New York City Ballet is pleased to offer you and one guest the opportunity to attend rehearsals. These visits are your opportunity to observe the Company’s daily routines, which are otherwise closed to the public. Remember, these are working rehearsals, not dress rehearsals.
Working Rehearsal Details
Location: In the auditorium of the David H. Koch Theater. Seating is in the rear of the First Ring.
Time: Tuesdays through Fridays, beginning sometime between 12:30 PM and 3:30 PM, for approximately two hours.
During NYCB's repertory seasons rehearsals are held during September/October, January/February, and April/May. Please note that dates do not include rehearsals of George Balanchine's The Nutcracker®.
Members may place requests until 5 PM three days prior to the requested date. No same-day requests will be taken. Each Member may bring one guest; children age 10 and up are welcome to attend.
To ensure the greatest artistic flexibility, rehearsal schedules are not finalized until late in the evening before a rehearsal day. Therefore, we cannot tell Members in advance what ballet will be rehearsed or the exact time of rehearsal. After 5 PM the day before your reserved date, call 212-870-5665 – a recorded message will inform you of the exact time to arrive at the theater and where to go. Final rehearsal program information will be provided when you arrive at the theater.
