For this performance, Gianna Reisen's Composers Holiday and Christopher Wheeldon's This Bitter Earth are joined by Justin Peck’s Year of the Rabbit, an exuberant breakthrough work inspired by the Sufjan Stevens score, and Wheeldon’s Estancia, depicting a romance on the Argentine Pampas and featuring a set designed by the Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava.

21ST CENTURY CHOREOGRAPHERS I

  • Composer's Holiday

    • Music by: Lukas Foss
    • Choreography by: Gianna Reisen

    Gianna Reisen, NYCB’s youngest commissioned choreographer to date, makes a splash with her first work for the Company, bringing refreshing vivacity to the stage through fleet-footed choreography set to a violin and piano interpretation of Lukas Foss’ Three American Pieces.

  • This Bitter Earth

    • Music by: Max Richter and Clyde Otis
    • Choreography by: Christopher Wheeldon

    This breathtaking and poetic dance for a couple explores the haunting, tenuous melodies set to a remix of Dinah Washington’s soulful rendition of “This Bitter Earth” and Max Richter’s “On the Nature of Daylight.”

  • Estancia

    • Music by: Alberto Ginastera
    • Choreography by: Christopher Wheeldon

    Featuring sumptuous painted landscapes by Santiago Calatrava, Estancia tells the story of a city boy who learns to wrangle horses, and ultimately the heart of a country girl, on the Argentine pampas.

  • Year of the Rabbit

    • Music by: Sufjan Stevens, Orchestrated by Michael P. Atkinson
    • Choreography by: Justin Peck

    Set to an orchestration of Sufjan Stevens’ 2001 electronica album Enjoy Your Rabbit, Justin Peck’s acclaimed Year of the Rabbit presents an ever-changing kaleidoscope of visually arresting shapes, weaving six featured dances into the corps de ballet.
