A program that reveals the wonderful variety of George Balanchine’s distinctive neoclassical style, this evening includes ballets created across more than three decades. In Concerto Barocco Balanchine matches the serene purity of Bach. The Tschaikovsky Pas de Deux is a tour de force that never fails to thrill. Stravinsky Violin Concerto dazzles with its intricate dynamics, while the ebullient Symphony in C, set to Bizet, remains one of the most treasured ballets of the Balanchine repertory.
