An emphasis on energetic, even ecstatic, rhythms unites Hershy Kay's bold orchestrations with Dan Deacon's synthesized sound. Stars and Stripes, Balanchine’s witty expression of the American spirit, kicks the program off with a flourish, followed by Tarantella, a vivacious pas de deux, and the miniature dance drama Slaughter on Tenth Avenue. Justin Peck’s exhilarating sneaker ballet caps a program sure to set hearts racing.

David H. Koch Theater
Running Time:
2 hrs. 11 min.

SYMPHONIC & ELECTRONIC

  • Stars and Stripes

    • Music by: John Philip Sousa, orchestrated by Hershy Kay
    • Choreography by: George Balanchine

    Set to Sousa's buoyant marches and dressed in Karinska's delightful all-American costumes, Stars and Stripes contains as much pure dancing as many full-length classical ballets.

  • Slaughter on Tenth Avenue

    • Music by: Richard Rodgers, orchestrated by Hershy Kay
    • Choreography by: George Balanchine

    An audience favorite with showbiz glam, Slaughter on Tenth Avenue is a vampy ballet about a jealous Russian premier danseur and his hoofing American rival.

  • Tarantella

    • Music by: Louis Moreau Gottschalk, reconstructed and orchestrated by Hershy Kay
    • Choreography by: George Balanchine

    The virtuosic pas de deux Tarantella showcases two pyrotechnical dancers in an ever growing profusion of steps.

  • The Times Are Racing

    • Music by: Dan Deacon
    • Choreography by: Justin Peck

    One of the most buzzed about premieres of 2017, The Times Are Racing is a sneaker ballet that sees its dancers in streetwear designed by Opening Ceremony, drawing inspiration from a variety of dance styles while matching Dan Deacon’s electronic score with youthful impulse and vigor.
