Description

The world-renowned New York City Ballet returns after 28 years to open Northrop’s season with a spectacular repertoire. Under the leadership of venerable Ballet Master in Chief and former NYCB principal dancer Peter Martins, New York City Ballet MOVES is a rotating selection of principals, soloists, and members of the corps de ballet, with live music played primarily by musicians from the NYCB Orchestra.

The program includes Wheeldon’s fantastic Polyphonia, set to ten of Ligeti’s eclectic live piano pieces. Stravinsky’s Duo Concertant was a favorite of Balanchine’s, and this important work integrates piano and violin musicians with dancers mirroring the music and each other on stage. A rare study in pure dance, the intense Herman Schmerman is the second William Forsythe work commissioned by New York City Ballet. A ballet for two dancers set to violin and piano, Martins' popular Zakouski explores vernacular gesture and movement through the emotional terrain of the works composed by the titans of Russian music. The fevered Hallelujah Junction is Martins' signature virtuosic ballet showcasing the strengths of the New York City Ballet.
