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. Balanchine’s Brahms-Schoenberg Quartet, a ballet in four movements, evokes the majesty of the Austro-Hungarian Empire at its height through its cast of more than 50 dancers and its elegant designs including costumes by the great Karinska.

David H. Koch Theater
Running Time:
1 hr 44 min

BALANCHINE + PECK

  • Belles-Lettres

    • Music by: César Franck
    • Choreography by: Justin Peck

    Layering Franck's lyrical score with Mary Katrantzou's intricately embroidered lace-lettered garments, Belles-Lettres is one of Peck’s most amorous ballets, replete with swooning pas de deux that build to an emotional climax.

  • In Creases

    • Music by: Philip Glass
    • Choreography by: Justin Peck

    Like a puzzle of shifting shapes and formations, Peck's first ballet for NYCB showcases his keen eye for manipulating bodies to form complex geometric structures and unique patterns. 

  • Brahms-Schoenberg Quartet

    • Music by: Johannes Brahms 
    • Choreography by: George Balanchine

    A sweeping romantic work for 55 dancers, the Austro-Hungarian-inflected Brahms-Schoenberg Quartet ends in an intoxicating finale.
