With geometric black and white costumes by Rodarte, Two Hearts is a constantly shifting profusion of steps and shapes that ends with a soulful pas de deux to a bittersweet ballad.

Marking the fourth collaboration between Benjamin Millepied and composer Nico Muhly, the score for Two Hearts, commissioned by New York City Ballet, draws inspiration from the Northern European folk song “Lord Thomas and Fair Eleanor”. Comprised of a principal duo and 12 corps de ballet members the ballet also features costumes designed by Kate and Laura Mulleavy of Rodarte.
