Set to an arresting Poulenc organ concerto, Liam Scarlett's first work for NYCB oscillates between touching pas de deux and sweeping ensemble sections — a piece that is at turns sensual and somber.
Scarlett, who was previously artist in residence at The Royal Ballet, where he was a former first artist, employs three principal couples and a male soloist, plus a corps de ballet of 10 dancers, in Acheron, a title of Greek origin. The ballet features costumes designed by Scarlett together with the NYCB Costume Shop and lighting designed by Mark Stanley.
