2017/18 Season Events

Saturday, January 27 at 11 AM: The Legacy of George Balanchine's Apollo
Join us as we explore the masterwork George Balanchine referred to as the “turning point” in his life: Apollo. Choreographed in 1928 for the Ballet Russes, Apollo is one of the oldest Balanchine ballets in NYCB’s repertory and the first major work created with his long-time collaborator Igor Stravinsky. See Apollo anew at this engaging presentation.

Monday, May 7 at 6:30 PM: A Celebration of Jerome Robbins
This spring we honor American dance innovator and New York City Ballet Co-Founding Choreographer Jerome Robbins with the Robbins 100 festival. World-renowned as one of the greatest 20th-century choreographers, Robbins transformed dance with his works for ballet, Broadway, and film. Join NYCB for this special presentation, hosted by NYCB Principal Dancer Adrian Danchig-Waring, as we explore the career of a choreographer who captured the spirit of an American generation. This program will feature discussions with artists who were deeply influenced by Robbins’ works, and will also include performances of excerpts from his catalogue of timeless ballets.
