About The Performance
A varied trio of Robbins ballets exemplify the range of his work through the decades.
Jerome Robbins, one of the premiere dance-makers of the 20th Century, was long associated with New York City Ballet, which became his classical home after his many years working in both ballet and on Broadway. This program unites three works that showcase his versatility and continual ingenuity: Fancy Free, Robbins’ first ballet, a classic comedy in dance depicting three sailors on a wild and woolly night of shore leave; In the Night, a quietly spellbinding ballet for three couples danced to four nocturnes from Chopin, one of Robbins’s favorite composers; and finally The Four Seasons, an exuberantly playful ballet that leaps nimbly between styles to suit the changing cycles of the year.
