Masters at Work: Balanchine & Robbins

JAN 20, 22 eve, 26, FEB 5 mat, 8, 10

Classical, Contemporary, and Comedic Converge in Works from NYCB’s Founding Choreographers

The ballets gathered here typify a rich variety of styles and tones from the Company’s founding choreographers. Balanchine is represented by the lushly romantic Walpurgisnacht Ballet, with its explosive sense of unfettered emotion expressed through classical steps; The Unanswered Question, an evocative and distinctive dance set to music from the American modernist Charles Ives, in which the lone ballerina is held aloft throughout the ballet; and Slaughter on Tenth Avenue, originally created for the Rodgers & Hart musical comedy On Your Toes. Jerome Robbins’ minimalist Moves is a still-radical dance performed without musical accompaniment.
