All Balanchine II

SEPT 29, 30 mat & eve, OCT 1

Approx. 2 hours, 5 min


Bourrée Fantasque, which debuted in 1949 and has only rarely been revived in recent years, returns to the repertory and is sure to charm audiences with its vibrant mixture of frolicsome comedy in the first movement and sparkling classical choreography throughout. Agon, a dance both austere in its means and sublimely powerful in its effect, marked a watershed in the storied collaboration between Balanchine and Stravinsky. And Slaughter on Tenth Avenue represents Balanchine as a supreme entertainer, with its deliciously zany story of a murder plot that goes awry, thanks to a high-kicking stripper and the fearlessly energetic hoofer who loves her.
