Balanchine evokes two distinct atmospheres in the ballets sharing this program, each boasting a cast of over 50 dancers. Brahms-Schoenberg Quartet brings alive the perfumed elegance of a distant era in Europe, ending in an intoxicating gypsy finale, and Tschaikovsky Suite No. 3 plumbs the romantic depths of classical ballet, crescendoing with each section before culminating in a majestic finale of tutus and tiaras.
