Exemplifying three choreographers’ distinct styles, this diverse program is the perfect primer on the breadth of NYCB’s unparalleled repertory. Accented by clean lines and dynamic speed, Balanchine expertly reconceives square dancing in balletic form, and Bigonzetti’s brooding and intensely physical manner depicts the journey towards a new life with all its struggles and anticipation. With his Broadway experience, Robbins dramatically envisions the four seasons of the year as enchanting allegories.
This performance also includes a See the Music segment, which turns the spotlight on the orchestra pit. The conductor or music director will discuss the score for The Four Seasons through an orchestra demonstration before the ballet is performed.
