Contemporary Ingenuity Framed by Neoclassical Elegance

Preceded by two beloved Black & White Balanchine ballets, Justin Peck’s Rotunda similarly conveys a pared-down celebration of pure dance, with intimations of improvisation and playful experimentation that mirror the commissioned score from American composer Nico Muhly. Monumentum pro Gesualdo and Movements for Piano and Orchestra, both set to scores from Balanchine favorite Stravinsky, are leotard ballets that represent the choreographer in neoclassical form. The sumptuous Chaconne, in itself a display of Balanchine’s virtuosity, begins with a lyrical adagio pas de deux before culminating in a spirited finale showcasing both principals and ensemble.

*The October 9 evening Ask la Cour Farewell performance will also include Christopher Wheeldon’s After the Rain Pas de Deux.
