Three Sides of Balanchine

Prodigal Son

Hosted by Russell Janzen

Feb 25–Mar 04, 2021

Subscribers Only

A thoroughly original take on the narrative story ballet, George Balanchine’s Prodigal Son retells the eponymous parable from the Bible with modernist music, decor, and choreography, translating an ancient tale into a timeless work. The narrative of a rebellious youth, his wayward journey and surrender to worldly temptation, and return to his father’s forgiving arms is communicated through stunning acrobatics and dramatically expressive movements.

Available to view until March 4, 2021 at 7:59 PM EST.
