A CONTEMPORARY DOSE OF AMERICANA
Resident Choreographer Justin Peck’s 23rd ballet for the Company is also his first full-evening work. Danced to celebrated compositions by the revered American composer Aaron Copland, including Appalachian Spring, Fanfare for the Common Man, and Billy the Kid, the plotless, intermissionless ballet features a cast of 30 and vibrantly colored sets by the artist Jeffrey Gibson. Its debut during the 22-23 Season was received with rapturous enthusiasm by audiences.
