Layering Franck's lyrical score with Mary Katrantzou's intricately embroidered lace lettered garments, Belles-Lettres is one of Peck’s most amorous ballets, replete with swooning pas de deux that build to an emotional climax.
With a cast of nine dancers, Belles-Lettres is NYCB Resident Choreographer and Artistic Advisor Justin Peck’s seventh ballet for the Company. Created for the 2014 Fall Gala, Belles-Lettres features costumes by London-based Greek fashion designer Mary Katrantzou and lighting by Mark Stanley. Set to César Franck’s Solo de piano avec accompagnement de quintette à cordes, the ballet marks the first time that Franck’s music has been included in the NYCB repertory.
