Pictures at an Exhibition

Choreography by: Alexei Ratmansky

Music by: Modest Mussorgsky

Like the ever-changing Wassily Kandinsky watercolors that set the stage, Pictures at an Exhibition’s ten dancers move in varying combinations to display a plethora of emotion, from raw and wild to solemn and soulful.

Created for New York City Ballet during the fall of 2014, Pictures at an Exhibition was Alexei Ratmansky’s fourth work for the Company. Using Modest Mussorgsky’s famed piano score, Pictures at an Exhibition, the ballet includes lighting design by Mark Stanley and projections of Wassily Kandinsky’s Color Study Squares with Concentric Circles, designed by Wendall K. Harrington. The 10 dancers are costumed in designs by fashion designer Adeline Andre, a frequent collaborator of Ratmansky’s.
