In a program that honors the past while looking to the future, a pair of repertory favorites bookends two new ballets. Jerome Robbins’ scintillating, mysterious Opus 19/The Dreamer opens the program, which concludes with Balanchine’s resplendent Symphony in C. The new ballets come from Lauren Lovette, a principal dancer creating her third work for the Company, and Edwaard Liang, a former NYCB soloist and currently the artistic director of Ohio’s BalletMet.
