About The Performance
An archetypal black and white masterwork meets contemporary favorites.
Created for the Company’s landmark 1972 Stravinsky Festival, Balanchine’s Stravinsky Violin Concerto quickly established itself as a repertory favorite, a celebrated leotard ballet both elegant and at times frolicsome, featuring a pair of bravura pas de deux for two principal couples. Alexei Ratmansky turned to a fellow Russian, Dmitri Shostakovich, for his second ballet for the Company, Concerto DSCH, a high-energy classical ballet that has returned regularly since its premiere in 2008. Also an instant hit with audiences, Resident Choreographer Justin Peck’s Everywhere We Go, among his largest ballets, featuring 25 dancers, was Peck’s second collaboration with the eclectic contemporary composer Sufjan Stevens.
