Please join us on Thursday, May 5, for the 2022 Spring Gala celebrating the 50th anniversary of the legendary 1972 Stravinsky Festival.
The Gala’s program will highlight ballets from the original Stravinsky Festival as well as a new work by former NYCB Corps de Ballet Member Silas Farley that pays tribute to George Balanchine and Igor Stravinsky’s landmark works. The score for the premiere will be created by composer and writer David K. Israel. This celebratory program will open with Jerome Robbins’ Circus Polka, a whimsical escapade for a carousel of 48 students from the School of American Ballet, joined by Balanchine’s Scherzo à la Russe, a sprightly dance for a female ensemble, and his streamlined masterpiece Stravinsky Violin Concerto.
