The effervescent Donizetti Variations is a smile-inducing dance brimming with delicate choreography and a seasoning of high-spirited humor, evoking both Italianate charm and the style of the great Danish choreographer August Bournonville. The ballet’s playful mood makes for a piquant contrast with Tschaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 2, created in 1941 as a tribute to the grandeur of Imperial Russia, subsequently reenvisioned by Balanchine in a more contemporary style, while retaining both the ballet’s beautiful essence and its scintillating choreography.
