The range of Balanchine’s choreography and musicality are illuminated in this program. Valse Fantaisie is a captivating dance set to a lilting waltz from the Russian composer Mikhail Glinka. The jagged choreography for the spiky Kammermusik No. 2 moves in tandem with the modernist score of the title by Paul Hindemith. And Balanchine commissioned Hershy Kay to adapt various popular British tunes for the grand parade of Union Jack, a big-hearted and boisterous tribute to the United Kingdom.
