MAY 10 – JUNE 1, 2024
Firebird Possokhov | Stravinsky
Serenade Balanchine | Tchaikovsky
Firebird is both visually and musically dazzling. Audiences of all ages will no doubt enjoy this sensational ballet fairytale. Serenade is a milestone in the history of dance, reflecting the ebb and flow of the ballet choreographic process with a sweeping score filled with romanticism and hints at classical ballet scores such as Giselle and Swan Lake.
MARCH 22-24, 2024
Belles-Lettres Peck | Franck
Frank Bridge Variations | van Manen/Britten U.S. Premiere
New Work | Barak | Bowers World Premiere
Belles-Lettres showcases Justin Peck’s exceptional choreographic talent as he weaves together a tapestry of emotions and stories. Frank Bridge Variations embodies the sensual style Hans van Manen is known for, and Melissa Barak brings another world premiere to the stage with a work set to music by American film and tv composer Kris Bowers of When They See Us and Bridgerton fame.
