About The Performance
From the mind of a master: regal elegance, idyllic romance, and swooning drama.
The season kicks off with a trio of classic Balanchine works that display the variety of his invention and musicality. Divertimento No. 15 is among the few ballets Balanchine choreographed to music by Mozart, and is celebrated for the delicacy and intricacy of its crystalline variations. As its name suggests, Scotch Symphony was designed as a tribute to the lush beauty of the Scottish Highlands, and evokes the mood and style of classical romantic ballets of the 19th Century. Rounding out the program is La Sonnambula, a gently dramatic and also deeply romantic work that spins a mysterious tale of a sleepwalker and the poet she bewitches.
