The 18/19 Season opens tonight with the first of six performances of George Balanchine's Jewels. Are you an emerald, ruby, or diamond? Get your tickets at nycballet.com/jewels.
On stage this week, we're starting off fall programming with everything Balanchine. Treat yourself to Emeralds, Rubies, and Diamonds with Jewels, or experience some timeless classics, including Concerto Barocco, Tschaikovsky Pas de Deux, Stravinsky Violin Concerto, and Symphony in C on the All Balanchine program. For all dates and tickets, go to nycballet.com/fall.
Concerto Barocco is one of George Balanchine's most revered and classic black and white ballets. Soloist Ashley Laracey describes the importance of the corps de ballet in the piece, who are in motion for almost the entirety of the 20-minute piece with precise, in-tandem choreography.
See Concerto Barocco on the All Balanchine program SEPT 21, 22 eve, 26 and OCT 14 for Joaquin De Luz's farewell performance: nycballet.com/fall.
As the third and final gem in George Balanchine's Jewels, Diamonds brings an elegance to the ballet with its central pas de deux. In the latest installment of Anatomy of a Dance, Principal Dancer Teresa Reichlen describes how the simplicity of the choreography requires attentiveness and concentration from the central couple in this regal ballet.
See Diamonds during our six-performance run of George Balanchine's Jewels, SEPT 18, 19, 20, 22 mat, 23, 25: nycballet.com/fall.
In this installment of Anatomy of a Dance, Principal Dancer Abi Stafford reveals that her solo in Emeralds, the opening segment of Balanchine's Jewels, is the opportunity to go out of her comfort zone with its deceptively delicate quiet qualities and adagio movement.
Jewels opens our fall season for six performances only, SEPT 18, 19, 20, 22 mat, 23, 25: nycballet.com/jewels.
