The silken precision of this Black & White ballet, set to an Alexei Haieff composition in equal parts vivacious and quietly nostalgic, makes this rarely performed work a delightful nod to the reputed Balanchine style.
This work was composed in five sections: "Prelude," "Aria," "Scherzo," "Lullaby," and a "Finale." The ballet is choreographed for a leading couple and four supporting couples dressed in simple costumes. Haieff Divertimento features a blues pas de deux and combines popular American dance idioms and modern concert dance with classic ballet.
