Apollo

Apollo, George Balanchine’s first great masterwork, literally transformed the art of 20th-century ballet. With its neoclassical approach to dance, this narrative ballet follows the young god of music, beauty and light, and three muses -- Calliope, Polyhymnia and Terpsichore, the muse of dance – who compete for his attention as they dance to Igor Stravinsky’s supremely elegant score.

Concerto DSCH

About this amazingly inventive and exciting ballet, set to a seething Dmitri Shostakovich piano concerto, Alastair Macaulay in The New York Times had this to say: “Its dances pour forth in a continuous stream of galvanizing excitement and affectionate intimacy … The most captivating classical ballet I have seen in years.”

La Valse

In a dark and mysterious ballroom, 34 dancers waltz to gripping music by Maurice Ravel that projects a mood of impending doom. The haunting, gripping work culminates with the appearance of a dark figure of Death, who claims the life of a woman in white as the horrified onlookers swirl about her upraised body.
