A contemporary piece of compelling humanity unites with a monumental work of stylized dances distilled from a story ballet for a program from “the finest Russian choreographer since George Balanchine” (The New York Times).
Russian Seasons: Ratmansky’s critically-acclaimed first NYCB work is a multi-hued ballet that embraces life's most important moments with its vivid and compelling humanity.
Namouna: A Grand Divertissement: A truly monumental work, Ratmansky abstracts Édouard Lalo's comical 19th-century story ballet into a stylized series of witty and animated dances for seven featured performers and a large ensemble.
