The zestily comic Western Symphony, Balanchine's playful tribute to the American Wild West – with toe shoes instead of tumbleweeds – highlights a quartet of dances that also includes Balanchine’s sweepingly romantic Valse Fantaisie, set to the music of his fellow Russian Glinka, Justin Peck’s spring gala premiere, and A Suite of Dances, a rare solo ballet originally created by Jerome Robbins for Mikhail Baryshnikov.

Location:
David H. Koch Theater
