The collaboration between Stravinsky and Balanchine was a landmark of 20th-century music and dance. This program brings together three ballets that have been called the “Greek Trilogy.” Apollo expresses the Greek myth through pure neoclassicism. Orpheus dramatizes the tale of Orpheus and Eurydice with an elemental simplicity and power. And while Agon, which Balanchine once called “the quintessential contemporary ballet,” eschews plot entirely, its title comes from the classical Greek word for “struggle.”
