Stravinsky Festival II

MAY 7 eve, 8

Approximately 2 hr 1 min

Traverse Stravinsky’s Legacy with Scores Spanning the Composer’s Inimitable Career

The breadth of styles from the various stages of Stravinsky’s career is on full display, beginning with Justin Peck’s Pulcinella Variations, which combines Stravinsky’s foundational neoclassical composition with classical technique and striking costumes by Tsumori Chisato. Balanchine is represented by two notably different works: the charming and evocative Scherzo à la Russe and Stravinsky Violin Concerto, a dynamic, demanding leotard ballet and one of the definitive neoclassical works in the repertory. For his first commissioned work for the Company, former NYCB Dancer Silas Farley returns with a world premiere homage to Stravinsky and Balanchine’s unprecedented collaborative relationship, set to a new score from composer David K. Israel based on a musical gift exchange between the two titans.

*For the May 5 gala only, Jerome Robbins’ Circus Polka will be performed in place of Pulcinella Variations.
