Throughout his prolific career, Balanchine’s affinity for Stravinsky’s compositions remained constant, making him one of the choreographer’s favorite collaborators. This program opens with an abstraction of a Hans Christian Andersen fairytale set to sprightly harmonies, followed by three stunning Black & White ballets known for their striking power.
