Named for the renowned celestial North Star guide, Polaris’s cast of eight mimic the stars, mixing and mingling as a singular body to form myriad constellations, led by a lone dancer searching for her own source of direction.
For his first work for New York City Ballet, choreographer Myles Thatcher, a dancer with San Francisco Ballet since 2010, chose Allegramente, the first movement of William Walton’s Piano Quartet in D Minor. With costumes by Lebanese-born, Paris-trained fashion designer Zuhair Murad, and lighting by Mark Stanley, the ballet for eight dancers premiered at the NYCB Fall 2015 gala.
