To honor Paul Taylor, the American choreographer who passed away in the fall of 2018, the Company will present Balanchine’s neoclassical favorite Episodes incorporating the solo originally danced by Taylor, not included in performances since 1989. Also returning after an absence of more than two decades is Balanchine’s Haieff Divertimento, a charming dance for five couples originally created in 1947. Completing this eclectic program are Concertino, a pas de trois from Jerome Robbins danced to jazzy Stravinsky chamber pieces, and Justin Peck’s Rodeo: Four Dance Episodes, set to Aaron Copland’s celebrated score.

Location:
David H. Koch Theater
Running Time:

CLASSIC NYCB I

  • Haieff Divertimento

    • Music by: Alexei Haieff
    • Choreography by: George Balanchine

    The silken precision of this Black & White ballet, set to a Alexei Haieff composition in equal parts vivacious and quietly nostalgic, makes this rarely performed work a delightful nod to the reputed Balanchine style.

  • Concertino

    • Music by: Igor Stravinsky
    • Choreography by: Jerome Robbins

    The captivating suspense of Stravinsky’s score, at times swelling, at others intricately layered, accompanies a trio of dancers and their compelling connectivity.

  • Episodes

    • Music by: Anton von Webern
    • Choreography by: George Balanchine

    A four part avant-garde work, Episodes grew out of Balanchine’s enthusiasm for Anton von Webern’s orchestral music, which Balanchine once wrote “fills the air like molecules.”

  • Rodeo: Four Dance Episodes

    • Music by: Aaron Copland
    • Choreography by: Justin Peck

    An abstract take on Aaron Copland’s well known Americana score, Rodeo: Four Dance Episodes pairs a lone woman with a cast of 15 jocular, energetic, and charming male dancers for a fresh and thrilling adventure that audiences adore.
