The dynamism of The Four Temperaments and the sparkling Symphony in C usher in the Spring 2017 performances, highlighting the range of Balanchine’s neoclassical style. The spring continues with Jerome Robbins favorites Moves, a spellbinding ballet performed without music, and the playful Fancy Free, both illuminating the choreographer’s flair for the dramatic.
Contemporary ballets abound with the Here/Now Festival, four weeks devoted to works created at NYCB during the past three decades, featuring 43 ballets, 10 programs, and 2 world premieres. Alexei Ratmansky contributes his fifth work for NYCB at the Company’s 2017 Spring Gala and Resident Choreographer Justin Peck debuts his third collaboration with singer/songwriter Sufjan Stevens a week later.
