75th Anniversary

OCT 11

Approx. 2 hours, 15 min


New York City Ballet gave its first performance at City Center on October 11, 1948. This year, on the same date, the Company will offer audiences a chance to step back in time to this momentous occasion in the history of ballet. The program—which will only be performed once—replicates that seminal evening by presenting the same program audiences saw then, comprised of three works that have become (or indeed were already) classics of the Balanchine repertory: Concerto Barocco, first created in 1941 for a precursor company to New York City Ballet;  Symphony in C, a feast of classical steps featuring more than 50 dancers; and Orpheus, which had made its debut just months earlier when the Company was called Ballet Society.
