Gianna Reisen’s second ballet for NYCB, the gestural and geometric Judah, joins the Jerome Robbins masterwork Dances at a Gathering, among his most emotionally resonant ballets, celebrating its 50th anniversary on May 22. Balanchine’s Stars and Stripes combines classic American marches from John Philip Sousa with classical choreography, concluding this program with a splash.

    • Principal Casting: MAY 1, 11: Indiana Woodward*, Harrison Ball*, Lars Nelson*, Emma Von Enck*, Megan LeCrone, Sara Adams

    Returning with her second offering for NYCB, Gianna Reisen employs dissonant music for violin and piano to illuminate themes of both community and independence, her choreography highlighted by gestural movements, geometric patterns, and romantic costumes from fashion designer Alberta Ferretti that evoke flowers, waves, and Grecian goddesses.

    • Choreography by: Jerome Robbins
    • Principal Casting: MAY 11: Lauren Lovette*, Sara Mearns, Megan Fairchild, Maria Kowroski, Lauren King, Gonzalo Garcia, Tyler Angle, Aaron Sanz**, Roman Mejia*, Peter Walker*
      **NYC Debut, *First Time in Role

    The quintessential piano ballet, Dances at a Gathering distills the spectrum of human interaction into the most natural of movements, a landmark for its invention, virtuosity, and constantly shifting emotions.

    • Choreography by: George Balanchine
    • Principal Casting: MAY 11: Ashley Bouder, Harrison Ball*, Erica Pereira, Emily Kikta, Daniel Ulbricht
