Spring Gala

May 4, 2023

The 2023 Spring Gala took place on Thursday, May 4, at the David H. Koch Theater and was generously sponsored by Porsche and Chopard, with additional support from The Macallan and Giorgio Armani Corporation

Since its founding in 1948 under George Balanchine and Lincoln Kirstein, New York City Ballet has long been at the forefront of innovation and invention, creating a new repertory of nearly 500 ballets, which has brought the art form into the 21st century and inspired generations. The gala program featured new works by Tony Award-winning choreographer and director Christopher Wheeldon and Canadian choreographer Alysa Pires, alongside Justin Peck’s iconic The Times Are Racing. This festive occasion highlighted ballet’s power to inspire through the works of these exceptional creators.
