BALANCHINE BLACK & WHITE I

    • Choreography by: George Balanchine
    • Principal Casting:
      April 28, May 1, 2 Mat: Teresa Reichlen, Sara Mearns, Justin Peck

    One of Balanchine’s greatest masterpieces, Concerto Barocco is music made visible as two elegant yet dynamic lead ballerinas each depict one of the instrumental soloists in a virtuosic double violin concerto.
