A world premiere from a choreographer making his New York City Ballet debut – Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater’s Jamar Roberts – joins three other recent works on this program highlighting fresh voices. The latest ballet from Justin Peck, set to a score from acclaimed composer Nico Muhly and first seen in the winter season, joins Christopher Wheeldon’s lyrical pas de deux This Bitter Earth, danced to a Max Richter remix of Dinah Washington’s recording of the title song, and the return of a new ballet from Edwaard Liang.

21ST CENTURY CHOREOGRAPHERS IV

  • Lineage (New Liang)

    • Music by: Oliver Davis
    • Choreography by: Edwaard Liang
    • Principal Casting:
       

    Edwaard Liang’s ballet for 16 dancers, set to the vibrant Apollo by English composer Oliver Davis, abstracts and deconstructs Georgian folk dance with choreographic patterning that parallels Anna Sui’s rich costume designs.

  • 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.”

  • New Peck (Muhly)

    • Music by: Nico Muhly
    • Choreography by: Justin Peck

    Uniting for the first time, Resident Choreographer Justin Peck will collaborate with contemporary composer Nico Muhly, who will contribute a commissioned score for Peck’s sole premiere in 19-20.

  • New Roberts (Preston)

    • Music by: Kyle Preston
    • Choreography by: Jamar Roberts

    Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater’s Jamar Roberts, whose choreography has been noted by The New York Times as equally "emotional as it [is] virtuosic," will make his first piece for NYCB in 2020 as a highlight of the Company’s annual spring gala.
