Dances from Resident Choreographer Justin Peck are united with an ebullient Balanchine classic. In Creases, Peck’s first ballet for the Company, draws on the propulsive music of Philip Glass for an ensemble work rich in geometric patterning. Peck’s Belles-Lettres has the distinction of being the only dance in the repertory performed to the music of the Belgian-born composer César Franck. At this performance only, Balanchine’s always enchanting Firebird, complete with fantastical characters and Chagall’s striking scenery, highights his choreographic imagination.
