All Balanchine IV

OCT 7 eve, 13, 15

Approx. 2 hours, 15 min


Balanchine’s ability to define music through dance, with infinite variety, marks all the ballets here. Concerto Barocco channels the delicacy and refinement of its Bach score through a pure-dance vocabulary that amplifies the music’s power. The elemental, alternately driving and melodic music of Prokofiev became the basis for one of the choreographer’s most dramatically powerful works, Prodigal Son, a retelling of the Biblical tale that is also distinguished for its designs by the great French painter Georges Rouault. And Bizet’s endlessly scintillating score proved a perfect match for Balanchine’s mastery of all aspects of classical technique in the enduring favorite Symphony in C.
