The Company honors the centennial of the birth of the great American modern dance choreographer Merce Cunningham with a revival of his fluid, shimmering Summerspace, an expansive work for just six dancers, which made its New York City Ballet debut in 1966 and has not been seen since 2000. Accompanying this rare revival are two Balanchine masterworks, both set to Tschaikovsky: the luminous Serenade, the first ballet he created in America, and the sumptuous Tschaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 2.

Location:
David H. Koch Theater
Running Time:
2 hrs 14 min

MASTERS AT WORK: BALANCHINE & CUNNINGHAM

  • Serenade

    • Music by: Peter Ilyitch Tschaikovsky
    • Choreography by: George Balanchine

    The first ballet Balanchine choreographed in America is a romantic work of immense sweep, set to a transcendent Tschaikovsky score.

  • Summerspace

    • Music by: Morton Feldman
    • Choreography by: Merce Cunningham

    Imbued with fluid angularity, Merce Cunningham’s Summerspace presents contemporary whimsy underscored by a suspenseful, chirping score.

  • Tschaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 2

    • Music by: Peter Ilyitch Tschaikovsky
    • Choreography by: George Balanchine

    Balanchine’s Tschaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 2 is an ebullient outpouring of classical technique with tiaraed tiers of corps de ballet dancers.
