A VARIED COLLECTION DISPLAYING THE NUANCE OF BALANCHINE’S PRISMATIC IMAGINATION

A quartet of Balanchine works, both beloved and comparatively rare, are gathered on this program. From 1972, Stravinsky Violin Concerto remains one of Balanchine’s Black & White leotard ballet masterworks, rarely absent from the repertory for long. By contrast, his Haieff Divertimento, created in 1947, returned to the repertory after a quarter-century absence in 2020. The five-part ballet combines classical steps with elements of popular American dance styles. Valse Fantaisie is a brief but sprightly classical dance set to selections of the Russian composer Glinka’s music, and rounding out the program is the effervescent Donizetti Variations, with its nimble choreography suggesting the influence of the great 19th-century Danish choreographer August Bournonville.
